    The Prince of Wales watches hundreds of young sailors doing the hornpipe on the parade ground at the Royal Naval School.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "A Massed Hornpipe - by 900 young sailors for the Prince of Wales at annual inspection of Royal Naval School."

    Greenwich, London.

    L/Ss show numerous lines of sailors marching across a parade ground on a very wet day at the Royal Naval School; the Prince of Wales (Duke of Windsor, King Edward VII) salutes them. M/S of the Prince fiddling with his gloves and straightening his tie.

    Great L/S of hundreds of young sailors doing the hornpipe on the parade ground (I'm going to learn this!).
