    Australian cricketers arrive to England.

  • Description

    This is a duplicate of item 785.29 - check for best quality.

    Full title reads: "Meet the AUSTRALIAN TEST TEAM."

    Southampton, Hampshire.

    Liner "Orford" arrives at Southampton harbour bringing the Australian Cricket Team to England. Pan across the line of Australian cricketers arriving to England. Cricketers walking down gangplank lead by the Mayor of Southampton. Crowds greet the players. Players leave with several men in dark suits.

    Several shots of the Australian cricketers laying a wreath on which is written "From the Captain and Members of the Australian Cricket Team". Memorial is in the town, double decker bus seen passing.

    Note: There is no paperwork for this item and the soundtrack is missing - difficult to find out where the cricketers lay the wreath.
