    Liverpool, Merseyside.

    Boy Scout parade is reviewed by General Edwards. Opens with shot of Lord Mayor of Liverpool (in top hat and big gold chain) chatting with old lady and General Edwards. They are standing in a line waiting for the parade to pass. Lord Mayor bends forward trying to see down street, he has a disgruntled expression on his face. Crowd behind them. General salutes and smiles, then leans over and says something to old lady.
