• Short Summary

    Air Chief Marshall Sir John Salmond inspects RAF cadets at Cranwell.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Cranwell. 'Pass-out Day' Air Chief Marshal Sir John M. Salmond ... on eve of his retirement - inspects cadets of Royal Air Force College."

    Cranwell, Lincolnshire.

    Cadets at the RAF College march across the parade ground. They are receiving a salute from an officer - presumably Air Chief Marshal John M. Salmond.

    Cadets seated in gymnasium. A cadet comes forward to receive the sword of honour from Sir John. The Air Chief Marshall gives a speech (no sync).

    (Sound track is very mixed up - lots of applause and military music - looks very cut up.)
