    Full titles read: '"On St. Patrick's Day in the morning..." - Duchess of York presents "Ireland's Emblem" to the Irish Guards."

    London.

    Various shots show the Duchess of York (Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother) standing on a small platform outside a barracks; she gives baskets of shamrocks to officers of the Irish Guards to hand out to their men, celebrating St. Patrick's Day. She seems to hand out individual shamrocks to a few of the officers.

    L/S of the line of Irish Guards as they raise their busby helmets in a cheer of 'hip hip hooray'. The Duchess watches them march by; another cameraman is filming her on the other side of the platform.
