    Our Answer To Germany - £2,500,000 in 5 houses - Trafalgar Square, London.

    Pan across what seems to be a recreation of the trenches of France / Belgium on Trafalgar Square. Crowds are gathered beyond. Priests on platform in middle of crowd. CU same; priest speaking beside mayor; some other priests walking by in FG below People walking toward camera; through a 'trench' protected by sandbags.

    Shot of people giving their donations - a woman (looks like Land Army uniform) steps up and pulls down a lever rigged up on a Howitzer gun; maybe it stamps a little book she carries. Finally; shot of a very elderly veteran (Chelsea Pensioner) standing by the gun with the young soldier who is accepting donations.

    First World War. War damage; home front.
