    I know may of the people seen in this clip.
    They are indeed Manchester United fans. I am fairly sure that the footage shown is two clips from a documentary that was to form part of a series on itv directed by Daniel Farson.
    If so it was filmed on a coach trip from Manchester to London on 1stFebruary, 1958 to watch Manchester United play Arsenal at Highbury.
    The filmed event was never shown in the North of England out of respect to the victims of the Munich Air Crash on 6th February. However a friend of mine doing his National Service and stationed in the south did see it as it was screened where he was stationed, I think, in Wiltshire

    I was on the trip until do not appear on any the the footage that is shown here.

    Further to my comment of 25th January, 2018.
    It is definitely footage filmed on 1st February, 1958 and was filmed for the trip as stated in my original comment.
    On looking at the footage again, after I had commented, I did recognise myself in the stadium clip.
