  • Short Summary

    Crowds in Trafalgar Square during War Victory Loan drive.

  • Description

    War Victory Loan.

    Trafalgar Square, London.

    Pan across Trafalgar Square showing crowds of people and large banners all over the base of Nelson's Column, urging people to give to the fund - 'Only 1 Day More - Germany Is Watching - Go To Your Bank Tonight'. A huge banner at the back of the square takes a parental tone - 'YOU! Have you bought your war loan?'. (This shot is repeated from ON 174 A).

    M/S of man in ceremonial dress (Mayor?) standing on a podium addressing guards wearing bearskin helmets (and probably crowds beyond them) in the square. Shots panning across crowds of people in Trafalgar Square - civilians and military plus clergymen in mortar boards.
