The General gestures for Princess to step forward. Pan right as she does; and as she takes flag on pole from another man in uniform. The flag blows in front; obscuring the action. She takes the flag from one man and hands it to another; pan to man with flag. Then the princess hands him the silver shield. Shot of 3 soldiers of the Newfoundland Regiment walking away from camera;the middle one holding the flag. They turn around; facing camera; standing with others of the regiment.
