  • Description

    Duplicate of item elsewhere on PM tapes - to be checked against main database.

    Full title reads: Folkestone and London - A Great Homecoming - A.E.R. Gilligan and M.C.C. team home again from Australian tour.

    Various shots of cricketers handing their tickets to a ticket collector as they leave a ship (presumably). One of the cricketers autographs a cricket bat. C/U of Jack Hobbs and his wife. C/U of another cricketer (Herbert Sutcliffe?) and others from the team.

    Please let Pathe know if you can identify these 1920s cricketers.

    Intertitle reads: "The crowd could not have been more enthusiastic even if they had brought back those "Ashes"."

    Large crowds mill around hoping to see the cricketers. "The Duke and Duchess of York, after their 4 months holiday, returned on the same boat." High angle shot of the royal party being escorted from the ship.
