    Camberley, Surrey.

    M/S of a man in an old-fashioned army uniform firing a musket. Various shots of army memorabilia at the National Army Museum; lots of rifles, pistols, general firearms. A woman works on restoring an old tattered flag, cleaning it with a water spray; other flags and pennants are seen. Two men are kitted out in the uniforms of the 12th and 13th Lancers respectively.
