    My late father is shown via his war record as having been a member of the RIC
    from August 1920 following his service in WW1. I wonder if he was among this group being inspected by Lloyd George in London during 1920.
    Is there a more specific month/date for this newsreel in British Pathe records?
    He died when I was a small boy and no personal recollections from him of those
    days ever reached his offspring.
