  • Description

    Titles read: 'Wandsworth. Peace Reply To Germany.'


    People coming out of a building with tall pillars at entrance; decorated with flags; Union Jacks and flags of other Allies. First an elderly man - Mayor? - then a lot of other old men; a few in uniforms. Veterans' group? Fade to shot of the Mayor and other men in back of a row of 5 women; posing.

    Fade to shot of crowd outside building; a large frame house with flags flying everywhere. Fade again to CU some children looking at camera; one boy is sticking his hand in his mouth (either he's got something stuck in his teeth or he's making a face). Pan to soldier in front of some more kids then CU of him manning the field gun turned into a stamping machine - which seems to have something to do with fund raising events around England - maybe it stamps credit for war bonds; as an alternative to the Tank which is also selling war bonds around the country. The Mayor hands soldier a paper as other officials; etc. look. Soldier stamps it; hands it back; and they salute.

    Patriotism. World War One; home front. Ceremonies
