  • Description

    Full title reads: "The King And Schoolboy Harvesters".

    Dorset.

    VS of King George VI inspecting schoolboys who are gathering in the harvest in the fields. The harvesting looks fairly old fashioned, using pitchforks and horse drawn carts. Good CU of the King as he looks around the field.
