    Brass band.

    Location of events unknown / unclear, possibly London.

    MS as brass band dressed in military style uniforms marches down the street; turns towards camera and marches past on left. Some children; including a pair of twin girls aged about 6; come skipping after it; a few other people stand watching.

    Pan on the band posing in front of theatre or music hall with trophies they have won displayed on a table in the centre. There are 2 young boys in the band wearing sort of giant shields on their chests; a few non-uniformed men sit in front of band; one of them plays with a pet monkey.

    Signs in background on theatre advertise Mabel Normand- -A Perfect 36 and a show called Fettered. CU trophies displayed on top of drums and table. CU band members holding instruments; talking with man in suit.

    Researcher indicates that this could be the Great Western Railway and Paddington Staff Silver Prize Band marching on Harrow Road, Paddington in about September 1920.
