  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this issue.

    Titles read: "IRRIGATION SCHEME AT CHURT".

    Churt, Surrey.

    Various shots of an orchard on a farm. David Lloyd George seems to be explaining the principles of water divining to a small crowd of people (a man behind him has a good nose in a cottage window then props himself up against it). A middle-aged woman walks about with a divining rod; it turns over to signify water below. We then see Mr Lloyd George with a middle-aged woman mentioned in paperwork as Dame Margaret. She turns on some taps, setting an irrigation system to work over the farm. Lloyd George presents Dame Margaret with a plate, shakes her hand and snatches a kiss - cheeky!
