    L/S of Monty Crick playing the piano. The comedian and entertainer Ronald Frankau walks on and starts singing his song 'I'm Terribly Terribly British !'

    Frankau talks about the far flung places of the British Empire. He says, "it's a pity it has been flung so far. All over the world there are thousands of Englishmen, sorry, there are thousands of Scotsmen and one or two Englishmen saving money and their country in uncomfortable places."
