• Short Summary

    Large numbers of cavalry troops prepare their show for the Aldershot Tattoo.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Aldershot. For This Year's Tattoo - Combined ride and drive of Cavalry, Royal Horse Artillery and massed mounted bands - in glory of pre-war uniforms - will be still another striking feature."

    Aldershot, Hampshire.

    Military bands on horseback ride through mock up Castle gate. The soldiers are wearing uniforms from before WW1. Following the bands come Royal Horse Artillery drawing field guns and Lancers.

    Various shots of the troops riding in great numbers across the Tattoo arena (it appears to be a rehearsal as there is no-one watching). The soldiers ride around in various formations (sound runs out).
