  • Short Summary

    Havelock Wilson MP and others speak at Trafalgar Square rally about 'Seamen's Boycott'.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Unauthorised Pacifists Censured. Mr Havelock Wilson MP and Seaman's representatives say "peace with victory", at Trafalgar Square meeting'. (Title has been transferred in negative.)


    M/S of a man, presumably Havelock Wilson, leaning on the back of a chair and speaking from platform at Trafalgar Square. Men standing behind him take notes. Pan over the crowd - hundreds of straw boaters and a few umbrellas.

    Another man gesticulates passionately as he addresses the crowd. An elderly woman makes a speech.

    M/S of base of Nelson's Column with banner across it reading 'Shell Shattered Ambulance'. Speakers move about platform in front of it.

    M/S of Wilson, posing for the camera, steadying himself with two walking sticks. Fade into sign held before camera reading 'Sailors & Soldiers - Don't forget to declare yourself in favour of the Seamen's Boycott of the Huns'. Fade back into shot of Wilson, looking rather sombre, then smiling.
