    M/S of a long line of soldiers wearing busbies, proceeding along the streets where the funeral procession is moving along. The funeral car passes. The coffin, covered by a Union Jack is carried into the church by pall bearers. It is then seen leaving the church at a slow pace, and moving along the side of the church.
