    Nice footage of wounded soldiers having a pleasure boat trip on the River Thames in London.

  • Description

    Dr Thames Begins Summer Treatment - river trip for wounded soldiers.

    London.

    View of Thames Embankment near Westminster Bridge with two pleasure boats filled with soldiers stand at quay. Trolley buses travel across bridge in background.

    Closer shots taken from the quay of the soldiers - all in uniform - sitting on the boats. Nice shot of the men having cups of tea - a few are eating some cake, too. A man in uniform walks around with jugs.

    View from one of the boats as we approach Tower Bridge - looks a bit misty. Clearer view looking back at the bridge as we travel on.
