    Unused / unissued material - dates unclear or unknown.

    Paris, France.

    Various high ranking French and British military officials wait in the cold.

    Two unidentified people get out of car and are greeted (possibly British Ambassador and wife).

    Duke of Windsor (formerly King Edward VIII) and Duchess of Windsor (formerly Mrs Wallis Simpson) arrive and are greeted. The Duke is wearing uniform. They walk into a building - snow is on the ground and a small crowd have turned out to see them. The Eiffel tower is in the background.
