    Lord French Inspects Troops - probably volunteers at Chelmsford, Essex.

    M/S of limp Union Jack flag being unfurled at top of flagpole. Troops with rifles march along street - some men among them in civvies - volunteers?

    Several shots as Lord French rapidly inspects long lines of troops in field. The soldiers stand to attention with bayonets over their shoulders.

    More shots of troops marching along streets.

    Cut back to Lord French confering with officers in the field and signing an autograph for a young girl. He gets into his car. Cut to shot of Lord French on platform and saluting (must be watching march past). More of troops marching along street - one man salutes camera. Military band bring up the rear (not playing).
