    Short extract - only visuals are short close up of F. Roy Tuckett and aerial shot of Mount Kilimanjaro.

    Short section only remains for this story. It is possible that other material was reused in a longer documentary. See record for the documentary called "London to the Cape - A Film Record of F. Roy Tuckett's Lone Aerial Trip". NB: The title for this series of film varies slightly from issue to issue. Some call it the "lone aerial trip", others "lone 8,500 miles trip".

    "In our last issue, Mr Tuckett, after many adventures, had reached Wadi Halfa - Today, he continues his story, en route for Khartoum and beyond." C/U of man - F. Roy Tuckett I presume. Rest of footage is missing. "And here we leave Mr. Tuckett, en route for the first flight over the mighty mountain of Kilimanjaro - highest in Africa. To be shown here NEXT WEEK. Short shaky shot of Mount Kilimanjaro filmed from an aircraft.

    Note: soundtrack missing from main track reel.
