  • Description

    Havelock Wilson - straight talk to strikers.

    Location of events unknown - London?

    March and rally by striking workers. Front diag. shot of march; men walking up street. A couple of sailors pull a man in a wheelchair. Some guys carry a huge banner with picture on it; a trade union thing. A brass band; in uniforms. Some young boys walk along with the marchers. Placard: 'We are Men of the Sea who are not afraid of the Hun Pirates'. Union Jack and other flags.

    DS rally; a sea of boater hats below; sailors and men in suits and these hats on platform; and MP Havelock Wilson speaking and gesturing. Closer shot panning over heads (that is to say hats; nearly all the hard flat straw hats; white with dark bands). Back to same view of crowd & side view platform. Then DS crowd waving hats. CU Havelock Wilson speaking to camera.

    Speech; oratory.
