  • Description

    George Robey Sells War Bond.

    Location of events unknown - London?

    Music hall comedian George Robey stands between the tracks of a tank, writing on a piece of paper. A fashionably-dressed lady sits at a small table, presumably filling in a form or cheque for a war bond. A crowd of people stand to the right of the tank.

    Cut to same scene, with a man in a bowler hat writing at the table. Robey looks at camera and takes off the man's hat. He says something then replaces it.

    Nice footage of a celebrity doing their bit for the war effort.
