    Prince of Wales and local dignitaries visiting coal mining village.

  • Description

    Location of events unclear - could be Wales?

    Panning shot mining village, showing railway tracks, colliery and mine buildings. MS men walking along path, down hill.

    Cut to CU some uneven steps, part of path on hill, houses beyond hill on right. A group of men walk down path toward camera, carrying lanterns and wearing protective hats. They are local dignitaries visiting mine, not actual miners. At the front of the group is Prince Edward (Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII / Duke of Windsor), he is also wearing mining gear*.

    * not a particularly clear shot of the Prince.
