    "Location of events unknown - London?" - no, the location is Southampton.

    The first half of the clip sees the procession as Earl Jellicoe is taken to the Empire Theatre to receive Honorary Freedom of the Borough. The event took place on 26 March 1929.

    The second half of the clip, at the memorial, presently remains a mystery.
