    Australian Prime Minister Mr Hughes addresses soldiers wounded at Gallipoli.

  • Description

    Prime Minister of Australia - Mr WM Hughes addresses soldiers who were wounded in Gallipoli.

    Australia?

    Mr Hughes, accompanied by officials, walks along line of Anzac soldiers in what looks like a churchyard or could be barrack parade ground. Looks like quite a wet and dreary day (could be England, not Australia).

    Soldiers march past. Mr Hughes addresses the troops. High angle pan over the soldiers standing to attention in the rain in the yard.

    M/S of Hughes taking off his top hat and bowing, looking solemn.

    Billy Hughes Prime Minister of Australia. Looks like England not Australia, but I could be wrong ...
