    Titles read: "JERSEY - BATTLE OF FLOWERS".

    St Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands.

    Various shots of the famous 'Battle of Flowers' show along the sea front at St Helier. Numerous flower-covered floats make their way along the prom. One float carries cancan girls, each with one leg in the air (bet that ached after a while). C/U of man looking on lecherously. A woman walks along on her hands, following a float in the procession.

    L/S zooming in to show film star / comic actor Leslie Phillips sitting on a float with Miss Jersey Battle of Flowers. The pair wave to the crowds. Another float contains twisting girls. C/U of girl barely contained in very low-cut costume doing the twist.

    After the parade, we see a free-for-all where everyone grabs flowers from the floats and throws them at each other. Looks like good fun.

    Programme on file.
