    The unveiling of a War Memorial in Hadlow, Kent. Full title reads "Maj. Gen. Sir C.V.F Townshend, of Kut fame - unveils War Memorial Window to fallen men of Hadlow."

    M/S The Major-General (Townshend) is dressed in full military attire, he walks toward the camera down a narrow path. His path is lined on either side by a combination of soldiers and boy scouts, all salute Townshend. In the background besides numerous well kept bushes is what looks like a country cottage.

    M/S Townshend walks out of exit through church doorway followed by other dignitaries, he chats briefly to some of them, before inspecting the line of soldiers standing to attention.

    C/U Townshend sits in a very luxurious looking open topped car. He drapes a fur blanket over his legs, he smiles perhaps sharing a joke with the colleague who joins him in the car. A small crowd of civilians are visible just behind the car as it pulls away.
