    The resting place of the flag from the sunken 'Raclan'.

  • Description

    Rule Britannia - the Union Jack of HMS 'Raclan' sunk by ' Goeben' was deposited in Parish Church. Location of events unknown.

    World War One Military ceremonies. Flag deposited in parish church. Union Jack of H.M.S. Raclan; which was sunk by the Goeben. Film is of people outside the old parish church; for the ceremony. Children come marching along a path; past a small building - chapel? First a lady in uniform; a male Boy Scout leader; and an older Scout. Then a few younger Boy Scouts. Then 'civilian' boys; well; non-Scouts; all wearing caps. Next; the girls' contingent: a woman walks along with a group of girls.

    Then shot of soldiers walking along on path; one with arm in cast & sling. Then sailors coming down path; with a thatched roof house in BG; and what looks like the headstone on a grave at the right. A Navy officer (well he's very young looking - maybe he's really some sort of cadet from an Academy) & a lady walk together - brick wall with ivy in BG across grass. Then Group of all sorts of people both military & civilian; infant and ancient; all standing in front of church... They start walking toward camera.
