• Short Summary

    Lots of Sergeant Major style barking and posturing during this rendition of the famous ditty.

  • Description

    M/S of Raymond Newell dressed in army uniform singing "When the Sergeant Major's On Parade." Closer shot of Raymond as he sings. He seems to be singing in front of a painted backdrop designed to look like a brick wall with a little archway. Probably filmed in the Pathe Studio.

    Raymond gets quite animated and gets into his role with lots of posturing and pointing of his baton. He barks orders.

    There is some sprocket damage to this negative - visible at the beginning of the story but not too bad, just a few seconds.

    Footage count includes end title.
