• Short Summary

    Billy Scott Coomber and His Singing Grenadiers

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone Presents - BILLY SCOTT COOMBER (of Jack Payne's Band Fame) WITH HIS SINGING GRENADIERS".

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of Billy Scott Coomber and his five singers, all dressed in Grenadier musical comedy uniforms singing patriotic English songs. Scenic shots of English fields, hills, farms and coastal areas illustrate the nostalgic atmosphere of the song. We also see brief shots of sailors and several shots of Land Army Girls at work in the countryside, oast houses, haystacks, brief shots of places of the British Empire and King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mother).

    Cataloguer's note: I cannot find any details of titles of the song(s); any information would be gratefully received.
