    TROOPS AT CEREMONY OUTSIDE ST. PAUL'S 1910 - 1919. This film is related to film No. 2320.15: 'Soldiers in Front of Cathedral'. That clip is dated 1915. This footage shows an unidentified military band setting up on the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral prior to a 'Drumhead Service'. Film 2320.15 shows King George V and Queen Mary attending...so the service must have had some significance...hence the numbers present.
