World War One; homefront; ceremonies; honours. Pte. Ratcliffe; V.C.; a Liverpool docker; is honoured at his old school. Shot of platform at ceremony. Ratcliffe is presented with some item. A priest stands and speaks. Great shot of all the children in the school yard cheering and waving flags; with one little girl toward the front very enthusiastic as she whirls a handkerchief around over her head; brick wall in BG; with some teachers and pupils sitting on wall or looking over it from balcony; pennants hang in FG - patriotism; celebration. CU on the platform of officer; priest; and the poor hero who looks like he's been through hell to get his medal; he seems shell-shocked.
