The Recruiting Boom - Miss Shirley Kellogg appeals for recruits for the 2nd London Regiment - 1915.
World War One recruiting boom at an outdoor rally in London. Shot of Miss Kellogg from back; standing on platform; with faces of crowd below in BG and double-decker buses on the London street in distance behind. Kellogg wears long black coat and black hat; waving her arms in dramatic gestures; (no doubt) appealing for volunteers with patriotic oratory; etc. 2 men on stage pass ECU to camera. Side shot; volunteers begin to come up: shots of 3 men climbing up small step ladder in front of stage. CU profile Miss Kellogg; smiling; with a few guys in suits in BG.
This is great footage - poor quality film, but still atmospheric - SL.
Military; army; speech; convincing.
