M/S of the King walking past a line of Naval officers. M/S of a solider in a busby introducing the King and Queen to important people on a station platform, a woman presents some flowers to the Queen, the King then makes a speech before climbing aboard a train (there is a lot of hand shaking and hand kissing before this actually happens!).

    M/S of King Ferdinand and King George V walking along a line of soldiers in busbies. L/S of a procession of Royal carriages passing down a crowd lined street, flags and bunting hang overhead. High angled shot of the procession coming down the street, the carriages and accompanied by soldiers on horseback. L/S of the procession coming down the Mall under Admiralty Arch. M/S of the procession passing a band on horseback. M/S of the procession coming through some ornate gates.

    High angled shot of the Romanian King and Queen laying a wreath at the Cenotaph, a large crowd watches. M/S of the King and Queen standing in front of a car and several officials, the King salutes. C/U of the King talking to several officers.

    Intertitle: "In the City".

    Various C/Us of the King and Queen climbing into a carriage. The carriage drives off.

    After this is another version of the story almost identical to the first. The only difference is that it includes the intertitle - "At the Cenotaph" . The alternative version is followed by cuts / out takes - shots are same or similar to the original story.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
