    SPORT: POLO

    Background: Visnews filmed Prince Philip with Indian Premier Nehru at Jaipur Polo Ground at New Delhi's race course Jan 24 where he saw the Maharajah of Jaipur's crack Ratanada team beat the Indian Army: four to one.

    The Duke, continuing his triumphal progress through a packed Delhi programme, knew every move of this fast game staged in his honour: the Duke is an expert polo player.

    Two of the Indian President's body-guards in their colourful dress stood at attention by his sides as the Duke presented souvenir medals to the players and umpires.

    Indian reporters are enthusiastic over the Duke. Says one: "This visit is received with a mixture of affection for the British way of life, attachment to the Commonwealth membership - and a dash of SNOWHITE."
