    Pyrford.

    LS. GV. Rowley Bristow Orthopaedic Hospital (2 shots). CU. plaque - St.Nicholas Home 1907. CU. Sign - Bristow Hospital. MS. line of Pressmen. MS. CU. line of nurses, Sir Gordon Richards with nurses, posing for press. Richards gets into car LS. Patients waving goodbye to car. MS. Interview with John Parsons: "I will spend three weeks at Worthing, and then back to Marlborough again, or I might pop over to Switzerland again for a week or ten days, anyway I'm going to Worthing first." John Parsons: "What are your plans?" Richards: "I can't say yet until I see how the old chassis goes after I've been on it a bit. But I am going to make up my mind with the next two weeks, you'll probably guess, but I can't say definitely." Nurse and Matron asked how their patient (Richards) behaved. Richards makes a few light hearted comments and the nurses laugh.

    (Comb.Orig.Neg.)

    Note: good shots of press (cameramen) and nurses being giggly and matron speaking (appearing coquettish!)
