    Lord Mayor at procession of war veterans in Wales.

  • Description

    Lord Mayor's ceremony at Neath, West Glamorgan, Wales.

    Various shots of Lord Mayor (of Neath?) with aldermen, magistrates and other local dignitaries posing for camera on some steps.

    Various shots of procession following a brass band down a crowed lined street. Many men wear medals and carry regimental / British Legion flags - probably war veterans parade to mark Armistice Day. The ex-servicemen are followed by boy scouts, girl guides, more brass bands, a troop of policemen (many also wear medals). The dignitaries and mayor walk at end of parade. More general shots of procession.

    Various shots of dignitaries and mayor coming out of church. Low angled shot of church spire, tilt down to crowds in street.

    Note: sound track is missing.
