    India.

    Various shots of nicely decorated elephant moving along street in Indian town. Crowd lining street, people cheer as the elephant moves past. Procession moving along street lined by the soldiers. Elephants, horse drawn coaches, troops on camels and troops marching in procession. Indian dignitary and Sir Leslie Wilson with wife moving through crowd to a dais. Crowd gathered around monument showing man on horseback.

    The paperwork suggest this is a ceremony of unveiling of monument to Indian warrior and statesman Shivagi by Sir Leslie Wilson.
