  1. Nicholas Pnematicatos says

    The Domion premiers were:

    Joseph Lyons from Australia, MacKenzie King from Canada, Michael Joseph Savage from New Zealand, James Barry M. Hertzog from the Union of South Africa. Hertzog is the Premier seen speaking to the King alone and MacKenzie King is seen touching Joseph Lyons of Australia's arm at the start of the video
