    Passing Out and Wings Presentation Parade at Syerston, Nottinghamshire - Roll 1.

    Various shots of aircraft carrying Captain AM Kimmins arriving at airfield. Door of plane is opened and photographer gets out!

    L/S of Kimmins walking to dais. General view of cadets lined up on parade ground. It looks like a really grey, miserable day. Kimmins inspects Royal Naval Air Service (RAF?) cadets then returns to dais for Wings Presentation. Several shots of Cadets going forward to receive their wings. Kimmins pins them on their sleeves. One of the Cadets who comes forward is Captain Kimmins' son, Midshipman SAE Kimmins.

    The Cadets all wave their hats in three cheers for Captain Kimmins. M/S of officer giving orders. Cadets march past the dais as Kimmins takes the salute. Band playing in background.

    Whole item is in natural sound.
