• Short Summary

    Lord Reading becomes Lord Warden and Admiral of the Cinque Ports.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "LORD READING - installed Lord Warden & Admiral of the Cinque Ports at Dover."

    Dover, Kent.

    Procession of dignitaries, mayors and men in academic robes, leaving the Castle Keep to attend the special service at church of St Mary in the Castle.

    Mounted military orchestra riding through crowded streets of Dover. An open car with Lord Reading (Sir Gerald Rufus Isaacs) and wife drive through crowded streets. Procession walking through the streets, going to Dover College Close where a meeting of the Grand C court of Shepway is held to install Lord Reading as Lord Warden and Admiral of the Cinque Ports.

    Lord Reading inspecting the Guard of Honour.

    Britain's Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald and Archbishop of Canterbury walking along the street after the ceremony.

    Alternative spelling for search purposes - Ramsey McDonald.

    There is a print copy of this story which is slightly differently edited - Lord Reading inspects the troops before driving through the streets on his way to Dover College Close. Print version sees to be more plausible. Print version of the story is on the same tape *PM0795* with Film ID 795.16.
