    Women War Workers; Procession of Homage.

    London.

    Parade of just about every sort of women's war organisation - various military women's auxiliary groups - the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps; the Women's Royal Navy Service; the Women's Royal Air Force; as well as the Women's Land Army; women Red Cross nurses; and still more women in more uniforms., all marching along the streets and a park in London (some shots show them walking away from Trafalgar Square?).

    A group of women who march wearing white tunics and trousers. There is one group of men in the parade; a marching band. Also a few CUs of a British Army bigwig watching the event and saluting. Could be General Sir William Robertson.

    Home front. World War One; women war workers.
