• Short Summary

    London Boys' Brigade and British Legion Military Band perform 'God Bless Our King'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "The year 1935 will remain long in our memories as Jubilee Year. Today we present The 1st London Company, Boys' Brigade accompanied by The British Legion City Of London Military Band in a patriotic ballad 'God Bless Our King'."

    Probably filmed in Pathe Studio, London.

    A choir of boys from the London Boys' Brigade sing 'God Bless Our King' accompanied by a military band (looks like quite a tight squeeze to fit them all in!).

    The chorus of this patriotic song are superimposed on the screen so that we can all join in: "God bless our King upon the joyous day of silver jubilee! Loyal voices ring from out the far flung Empire over land and sea. Noble ruler of a mighty nation, Long may we sing - That God will bless and save our gracious King."

    Final chords are played over the end title.
