    WOUNDED AT GUILDHALL 1914-1918. The band shown in the clip is that of the Grenadier Guards. The extremely tall tuba player on the front rank can be found on other Pathe clips showing this band around this period. They are in service khaki battle dress rather than their peacetime scarlet tunics or winter greatcoats.
