    Egypt.

    Various shots of Sir Miles Lampson reading telegram from the King George VI to the Indian troops in Egypt - natural sound. Troops lined up in the desert listening the address. King thanks them for their loyalty to the United Kingdom. Anthony Eden then speaks and echoes similar words to those of Sir Miles Lampson. He also thanks the Egyptian authorities. Several shots of Anthony Eden inspecting troops. Anthony Eden and Sir Miles Lampson get into car and leave.
