  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Italy.

    Car pulls up outside building. Pan along row of Italian and British Union Jack flags. Shots of British Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and Benito Mussolini (Il Duce) - poorly focused. The leaders leave in cars.

    Exterior shot of building draped with flags. Trumpeters play fanfare. Guard of Honour awaits inspection. More shots of the flags. Halifax, Chamberlain and Mussolini come out of building and pose for cameras. The leaders are driven away. Crowds have come to see them.

    N.B. This is presumably around the signing of the Anglo-Italian agreement in the late 1930s.
