    The opening scene of this clip was filmed on the parade ground of Willems Barracks (formerly the West Cavalry Barracks) in Aldershot. The next scene shows their Rolls-Royce armoured cars turning left out of Wellington Avenue (now renamed Willems Avenue) and heading south on the Farnborough Road (A325) past the verger's quarters of the Garrison Church.
