    Massive parade of American troops in British city.

  • Description

    American Troops Parade.

    Location of events unknown - London?

    Good general view of crowd of people in city street, standing still and awaiting parade or spectacle! A policeman stands in front of them. Two horse-drawn open carriages drive past crowds on pavements. Officers and car outside building with crowds. Cavalry guards come along streets followed by American troops marching on foot, led by military band (not playing, just carrying instruments). Soldiers carrying bayonets.

    Pan over crowds - Adelphi Hotel seen in background. More of parade; American flags being carried by soldiers. Military officers walk past lines of troops. US troops lined up with their officers saluting. Disabled soldiers with crutches stand on steps of building with pillars. More of soldiers marching along streets - good for showing the extreme numbers of Americans that came over here.
