    This clip's current date of 1929 is incorrect - this funeral took place on 22 March 1930.

    "Lothlothian" on the first line should read East Lothian.

    The country church seen is Whittingehame Church.

    Confirmation here, (confirmed by many other sources), that Balfour died in March 1930.........
