    M/S of a procession of women coming out of a Cathedral ( Westminster Cathedral? ). The women are nurses and nuns, followed by a group of girls in white veils.

Standing on the steps to the cathedral watching the procession are several gentlemen in top hats and a couple of army officers. M/S of men in cassocks carrying banners, with statements such as 'All Sing', coming out of the Cathedral, they are followed by more men in cassocks carrying brass instruments.
