  • Short Summary

    Royal visit to a massive excavator machine in action.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Prince of Wales...excavator. During crowded day's of tour, the Prince enjoys novel experience of operating mighty excavator."

    Lincoln, Lincolnshire

    M/S as the Prince of Wales arrives and begins handshake greetings. There is a huge digger device - they look at the large equipment housing, as it moves, swinging round. The group of officials stand rather close to the huge swinging leviathan - and there is a hilarious sequence at the end with a man apparently being knocked over in the background, by some of the moving equipment.

    Note: One part looks like a knock the mayor over competition - no health and safety preparations for this tour as one man actually falls over.
