  • Short Summary

    Queen Mary presents Colours to the West Surrey Royal Regiment.

  • Description

    Guildford, Surrey.

    Title: "H.M. Queen Mary presents Colours to the Queen's Royal Regiment (West Surrey)."

    M/S of a vicar blessing a heap of drums and regimental flag, he is watches by a crowd of people sheltering under umbrellas. M/S of several officers kneeling in front of a platform under a canopy, they hold up their regimental flags for Queen Mary to inspect. M/S of a battalion of troops marching across a field, they are watched by a large civilian crowd. C/U of Queen Mary beneath the canopy.

    Cuts / Out takes start at 01:43:42. Various shots of troops marching about outside Buckingham Palace, London. Includes shots of a brass band in busbies. Shots are edited to dissolve into each other. M/S of a soldier in a busby in his sentry box, ordinary people wander past. Shots appear to be from another Pathe Gazette story from around this time. Followed by more shots of Queen's Royal Regiment in Surrey, not too dissimilar to the cut story.
