  • Description

    Full titles read: "Duke of York - sees British Army score runaway win by 6 goals to 2 over Belgian Army."

    Woolwich, London.

    M/S of the Duke of York (Prince Albert, King George VI) walking along a line of football players, shaking hands with each one; he is accompanied by an Army officer and two other men. The Duke shakes hands with the other team.

    M/S of the two team captains shaking hands on the pitch; the referee tosses a coin twice for the kick-off. Several shots of the football match in progress; L/S of the ball going into the goal. Nice, though brief, shot of the crowd of military men and schoolboys cheering and waving their hats - some are probably army cadets, they look very young.
