    Cuts from newsreel story 46/86 - El Alamein Anniversary.

    Reunion concert to mark the occasion of the 4th anniversary of the battle of El Alamein in the Royal Albert Hall, London.

    Mute shot of comedian / actor Jack Warner performing at the microphone.

    Mute shots of Field Marshal Bernard 'Monty' Montgomery at the microphone and then Winston Churchill. View of the audience, they seem to be giving Churchill three cheers.

    Nice shot of veterans being given some cigarettes and giving the V-sign (ahem, for victory!) with big grins on their faces. Men mill about after the concert.

    Unidentified man in army uniform makes speech. Several shots throughout of the Eighth Army 'Crusader' insignia at the back of the platform.
