Italian Commander-in-Chief General Cadorna visits Italian Hospital in London; and a crowd is there for some reception or ceremony in his honour. Cadorna outside hospital greeting many people; several children in front row; some little girls in white dresses stand together; a boy laughing.
Cadorna shakes hands with various people; salutes others; making his way to the left. CU side view Cadorna salutes. Cadorna at top of steps; meeting old man; other people on steps; including little girl with bouquet; waiting to present it to him - her mother keeps holding her by the shoulder and pushes her forward at the General as he descends steps; and the kid gives him the flowers - then Mamma yanks her back.
Shot of a man holding open car door. A man in civilian dress gets out; talks to another man. Then the General and some other Italian military men get out of car; walk past. Flashback to the mother scene again for a bit - girl holding flowers; and at very end she turns and looks at camera. Also on ON 420.
