    Full title reads: "Hounslow. 'Goodbye-ee ... goodbye-ee ... don't sigh-ee"! ... Streets thronged at dawn to give 1st King's Dragoon Guards a cheery 'send off' to Egypt."

    Hounslow, Greater London.

    Band of 1st King's Dragoon Guards Regiment lead parade along street. The soldiers are wearing pith helmets, presumably what they will be wearing for their service in Egypt. A few people walk alongside.

    Shots of the soldiers - they are carrying quite a lot of kit - bed rolls, swords, rifles etc.
