    Empire Thanksgiving Service in the presence of King George V and Queen Mary.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates unclear or unknown.

    Flash frame title reads: "But May's greatest event was the Empire Thanksgiving Service in the Stadium."

    Wembley, London.

    King George V and Queen Mary stand in the Royal Box. Troops carrying flags of various Empire / Commonwealth nations march past in large parade. Yeomen of the Guard (Beefeaters) march past. More flags and veterans march past.

    N.B. Not entirely clear what this parade is in aid of, the paperwork suggests the Jubilee in 1935, a date on the screen suggests it is 1924. May have been transferred at the wrong speed.
