    Islington Merchant Navy Queen and her escort moving slowly through crowd towards small stage where the coronation ceremony is to be held. Merchant Navy Queen on dais, a man on her left addresses the gathering. Naval cadets are seen lined up in front of stage.

    Man who previously addressed the crowd, crowns the queen. Various shots of the people looking on - old, young, in uniforms, nurses, children. Many nice shots of the children watching the ceremony.
