    PORTUGAL CELEBRATES ANNIVERSARY OF INDEPENDENCE

    Portugal.

    Various shots of the men with banners, look like war veterans, marching towards the camera. Portuguese dignitaries watching the march past. Shots of the parade dissolve one into another so it is impossible to say how big he parade is. Some men in the parade give a Fascist salute. Various shots of the men in uniforms holding different flags - unclear what that is about. Portuguese high officials, along with high ranking officers entering church for a service. More shots of the parade.

    "Portuguese dignitaries watching the march past" - amongst them, the man on left of picture at 00:17 is the Portugese Prime Minister, António de Oliveira Salazar.
