  • Description

    King George V and Queen Mary at Bedford.

    Queen Mary chats to an elderly man with his back to us in the street. Crowds look on. King George appears. Shots of King George inspecting troops and the royal couple speaking to some elderly men.

    Long lines of troops carrying bayonets march along a field - looks like grounds of a public school. King and Queen shake hands with dignitaries. Schoolboys cheer the King and Queen and wave their hats in the air.
