  • Short Summary

    War Bond rally in Trafalgar Square, London.

  • Description

    War Bonds sold at Trafalgar Square, London.

    A man lifts a little boy mascot up on platform; the child is wearing Scottish kilt. They turn the child to pose, he pulls lever on gun to stamp bond. Inserted short film of Tommy Atkins at the front getting in a bit of Rest and Recreation. Dark CU soldiers playing cards; wearing helmets.

    Back to Trafalgar Square: an elderly veteran climbs up to the War Bond platform and hands paper over to be stamped. The old man makes a speech from the War Bond gun platform; gesturing and pointing out to the presumed listeners; a young soldier below watches; looking amused.
