  • Description

    Unused / unissued material.

    France.

    Various shots of large service held in war cemetery - looks like memorial, rather than funeral, service. Beret wearing buglers and bag pipers from Scots regiment lead parade of British soldiers and French civilians into cemetery. Dignitaries lay wreaths on graves while priests conduce open air service. Good shot two Scottish soldiers with two French girls huddles under umbrellas. More shots parade, as well as bands, altar boys and choir boys also march through cemetery. More shots wreath laying - a French policeman (a gendarme) lays a wreath. More shots of band playing and people singing (national anthem, perhaps?)
