    Intertitle - 'Miss Vi Loraine sells the "Warriors' Song"...'
    Shot of her stood on a platform surrounded by people as she hands out copies of the song. C/U as she speaks animatedly.

    Intertitle - 'Bobby Hale - did his bit in his own inimitable way....'
    Shot of a crowd playing instruments, someone is playing an oversize trumpet. Bobby is playing a long horn, he plays around and sticks it in his ear, he looks like he might collapse from the effort of it all.

    Leslie pops up from behind a sign advertising the Warriors' Day, he point to it, turns it round and smiles at the camera.
