  • Short Summary

    Soldiers on parade display precision reaction to commands.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Air Force Chapel. In Chester Cathedral dedicated by the Bishop of Chester in Presence of Sir Samuel & Lady Hoare."

    Chester, Cheshire

    M/S of a street parade, soldiers in army dress, shouldering arms with bayonets shining. There are neat lines of troops inspected in a parade ground. Men stand in a knees bent stance, and on command, take bayonets, and fix them into the sleeves. An officer signals them to attention, and then, about turn, and quick march - off to the right.

    Note: Excellent timing.
