    Full title reads: "Thousands attend deeply impressive service in Liverpool".

    Armistice Day, Merseyside.

    M/S of people laying wreaths on steps of building with columns (could be Cotton Exchange). M/S of four representatives of armed forces - soldiers from army, sailors from navy - standing around pile of wreaths. M/S of four soldiers playing bugles - looks like last post. Panning shot of crowds standing in silence.

    M/S of procession marching past steps of Exchange. Men and a few women in black shirts march past saluting with right arm folded across chest. Two of the men carry flags; one Union Jack, one with axe-head symbol on. The procession appears to be some kind of fascist movement - probably Italian as Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists did not start until 1930s. C/U of sailor beside wreaths. C/U of soldier by wreaths.

    Cuts / out takes start at 01:44:12. C/U of bagpiper. M/S procession of policemen, some wearing ex-serviceman medals. They are followed by more World War One veterans and widows. Some shots of fascists laying wreaths. M/S of woman getting out of car and shaking hands with people on pavement. More women are seen getting out of another car. Various shots dignitaries coming out of civic building, passing crowds on pavement, some carry flowers. Otherwise, shots similar to those in edited version of story.

    Note: regional variations of story for Manchester, Leeds, Cardiff, Newcastle, Birmingham and Dublin all exists in G 1346. Also for Cenotaph memorial service - see ARMISTICE DAY 1926 also in G 1346.
