    Full title reads: "Beauvais, France. They Nobly Fell! The Empire 'mourns those splendid men whose sacrifice has been added to that glorious list of Englishmen who, on uncharted seas and unexplored lands, have gone into the unknown as pioneers and pathfinders and have met death.' (The Prime Minister)."

    Beauvais, France.

    Various shots of the tangled wreckage of the R 101 Airship. Bits of the skin of the dirigible blow in the wind and smoke rises from parts of the crashed craft. An aircraft flies over the scene.

    N.B. For search purposes R-101 or R.101 or R101.
