  • Description

    A Chinese cheerleader with megaphone exhorting crowd to cheer and wave flags at kerbside. He seems to be conducting a band or some singers.

    Various shots of crowd including children waving flags.

    Chinese cavalry and infantry pass. They are escorted by Royal Air Force motorcyclists and a car. R.A.F. airmen and police line the route. Some of the bystanders smile and laugh at camera.

    High angle shots of crowds and parades. Shots of firecrackers (?) being let off.

    Moving shots of parade including marching band.

    Paperwork states that this is 1935 although it looks later. This is a very large well attended event - paperwork doesn't give details as to the occasion.

    B.174. Layzell Neg. (360ft).
