Lady Jellicoe opens a rifle range for the Naval Boys' Brigade and has a go herself!
Lady Jellicoe, wife of Admiral Jellicoe, opens a rifle range for Naval Boys' Brigade at Leytonstone, London.
Lady Jellicoe, wearing a fabulous hat with a long white vertical feather, sits beside her husband at the opening ceremony. Others sit beside and behind them.
At the rifle range, Admiral Jellicoe teaches his wife to look through a rifle that is mounted on a tripod. She covers her left eye to see better, but doesn't seem too impressed and wrinkles her nose.
Admiral and Lady Jellicoe walk along a residential street, past crowds and members of the Naval Boys' Brigade who hold flags and guns. Lady Jellicoe makes a little speech - both she and her husband look rather jolly.
The pair are seen back at the rifle range.
