    Full titles read: 'Britain's "Speed King" - Capt. Campbell welcomed home says, "I am not satisfied with 206 miles an hour!"'

    Southampton, Hampshire.

    M/S of a group of people gathered around Captain Malcolm Campbell as he is presented with a large trophy cup with the Star Spangled Banner and Union Jack flags pulled through the side handles. He says a few words and poses with the cup with various other men in the group and alone, looking very jolly.

    On board a liner we see Captain Campbell posing with a lady, (presumably his wife) also an older woman who is probably the Lady Mayor of Southampton, and an unidentified man. L/S of Campbell and his wife coming down the gangplank of the Cunard ship to the docks, followed by three other gentlemen.
