Intertitle reads: "In this Pictorial is the EIGHTH of TEN small scenes in which we've purposely made a cardinal blunder" (presumably there are another 9 of these scenes somewhere.) "We will award £100 to the Patron who gives the TEN correctly - or nearest thereto. In event of tie the £100 will be divided." "There will also be £25 in cash consolation prizes for those next nearest." "Send Postcard to Pathe's London, stating the intentional fault in the following little film......No. 8."
