  • Short Summary

    The 2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards leave Shanghai for home.

  • Description

    Full titles read: '"Well done... The Guards!" - Impressive military ceremonial and enthusiastic civilian demonstrations marked departure of 2nd Batt. Coldstream Guards for home.'

    Shanghai, China.

    Great street scenes in Shanghai as a long line of 2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards march along the side of the road; some small boys run beside them. A small group of people stand and watch as they go past. M/S of the men queuing to get onto a ship; nice panning M/S of a group of officers. Panning shot of a group of Shanghai policemen.

    M/S of an officer lighting a firework (?) as others stand about watching - it goes up in smoke! High angle L/S of a small crowd of people waving goodbye from the quayside.
