    Japanese Prince Hirohito visits Britain.

  • Description

    Prince Hirohito of Japan visits Britain.

    London.

    Probably Hirohito. He would be about 18 years old here; and he did travel in Europe in his youth. MS as he reviews troops along with Japanese and British officers. MS soldiers marching, Prince in foreground. MS's British and Japanese officers together, soldiers dressed in black with rifles and bayonets spring up and run down hill, side view.

    MS some of the officers by a scaffold with heavy bags hanging for bayonet practise. MS parade of horses. MS Japanese group watching. MS soldiers marching in gas masks, weird sight. Then a sports display: men wearing rugby shirts stand in a circle on a field, another man stands in the middle and swings a rope around, the men jump over it.
