    High angle panning shot across people, army and clergy gathered around Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday. Long shot of political leaders lined up at the ceremony: Prime Minister Clement Attlee, Winston Churchill, Sir Stafford Crips, Herbert Morrison and more, naval cadets lined up behind them. King George VI followed by Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) walking towards the Cenotaph. He pulls the cord and walks back. Sound of the bells ringing accompanies his actions. Several shots of the King placing wreath on base of the Cenotaph, he moves back and salutes. Princess Elizabeth places wreath at base of Cenotaph, she moves back and salutes. Several shots of the gathering, band playing sombre music (natural sound), army, clergy and dignitaries lined up around the Cenotaph, crowd around them.
