    Park Lane, London - December 1953.

    C/U of gold plaque and certificate to be presented to Neville Duke, test pilot for De Havilland. Neville Duke is seen talking to guests, including Mr Vagn Christenen of Scandinavian Airlines.

    Duke is presented with the plaque by Mr Christenen. They shake hands and Duke looks at the plaque with Mr Christenen and others present at the ceremony.

    Note: Duke broke several air speed records in 1953 so presumably that is what the plaque is for.
