  • Short Summary

    Footage from the British Legion's Annual Conference in Scarborough.

  • Description

    Full titles and first section of story is missing.

    Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

    Intertitle reads: "He has never spared himself in the cause of the Ex-Service Men."

    M/S shows a group of men, including the Prince of Wales, (Duke of Windsor, King Edward VIII), and possibly Marshall Foch and Lord Jellicoe, walking down some steps, followed by a large crowd. This is probably at the British Legion's Annual Conference.

    The group walk across a field, accompanied by several policemen and photographers. M/S of the Prince of Wales signing a leather football for a man. M/S of the Prince at another time, in military uniform, shaking hands with several war veterans and talking to them. M/S of the Prince on another occasion talking to veterans.

    L/S of a long procession of clergymen and Legionaries walking past a field; crowds line the way. M/S of the Legionaires marching along in the procession; they are in civilian dress and most wear medals. L/S of a religious service going on at the base of a memorial. General views of the enormous crowds around the memorial. M/S of the Legionaires marching past a group of military dignitaries on a small platform, possibly including Lady Haig, Marshal Foch and Lord Jellicoe.

    Note: this story is quite confusing without the first section - I assume some of the footage is from the British Legion's Annual Conference, the remainder may be just a montage of sequences showing the Prince of Wales' work in the cause of ex-servicemen.
