    Several shots of the Russian delegation , Peoples' Commissar Vyacheslav Molotov among them, waiting for arrival of General Sikorski. Snowbound airport, men in fur coats and fur hats - seems cold.

    Various shots of Polish transport plane bringing President of Poland, General Sikorski, to Moscow airport. Plane landing, engines stop and General Sikorski is is greeted by Mr Molotov and several other Russian dignitaries.

    Two flags flying, Guard of Honour lined up while the Polish National anthem, International and Russian National anthem are played. Guard of Honour march past.
