    Posthumous Honours.

    Northampton, Northamptonshire

    World War One. Brigadier General Colomb presents medals to relatives of fallen heroes at a ceremony / outdoor reception type event; in Northampton. Sort of touching film here; of the General giving decorations to mourning family members of dead soldiers. Parents of soldier step up; the father tipping his hat; the general hands him a medal; dad salutes; and they turnaround and walk off. Next 2 women step forward; in coats and hats and muffs. General gives the medal to girl who looks as if she may cry any minute. CU of the young woman holding up the medal;pan to the father standing next to her; also holding up his son's medal. Group of family members and military after the ceremony; meeting; talking; etc. Pan to right along long row of soldiers. Again; pan across yard full of family talking in small groups. Casualties.

    G 418 B.
