    Senior officer presents medals to soldiers on parade ground.

  • Description

    Presentation of Medals.

    Location of events unknown.

    A line of soldiers stand in a courtyard or parade ground - not standing to attention, but quite a casual stance. Several shots of soldiers being presented with medals by a senior officer who pins the honours on their tunics. A crowd of spectators watch from the distance. Another film cameraman is seen in one shot in the background - doesn't seem to be filming. M/S of soldiers with medals, some on ribbons round their necks, standing to attention.

    Long lines of soldiers march past, carrying rifles over their shoulders.
