• Short Summary

    VE Day celebrations in London & King's speech.

  • Description

    London.

    Several shots of mass crowds seen from a balcony of Buckingham Palace during the celebration of Victory of Europe Day (VE Day). King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother) looking at crowds from balcony.

    Winston Churchill posing to cameras with military personnel. House of Commons speaker and MP's walking through cheering crowd. More shots of crowd outside Buckingham Palace.

    Several close up shots of the King speaking into microphone - natural sound. He asks the listeners to join with him in the act of thanks giving. He seems very confused.
