  • Description

    Navy Funeral.

    Location of events unknown.

    Crowds of people - civilians, soldiers and officials, await arrival of ship at small docks or harbour. Coffin is then pulled on wagon along streets by policemen, past crowds of people.

    At another location, sailors pull the coffin along, out through the grounds of a building, while Royal Marines line the route, with heads bowed. At one end of the grounds, the coffin is lifted off the cart and carried by sailors. They walk round the corner of a small gatehouse or building; sea is in the background, so presumably they are loading the coffin onto a boat or ship at a private pier or jetty out of view.
