  • Description

    Presentation of Ambulances to Red Cross. Location of events unknown.

    World War One; home front. Some sort of rally and march for Red Cross going on; with major trade union support. Rainy; foggy weather. Parade going on; with lots of trade union banners approaching. Men wear sashes with various emblems. Scenes of rally: pan across crowd; with a Red Cross ambulance in middle of people; those banners in BG. Start to pan on men standing in front of ambulance. A jumble of shots; jumping from one to the other back & forth rally/marchers. Shot of 2 trade union banners hanging from tall pole; and blowing like crazy in the wind.

    CU side of ambulance with Red Cross emblem; some boys walk by. Then a cool shot of 5 men; decked out in these sashes with all sorts of stuff on them; standing in front of a banner for the 'National Union of Vehicle Workers'; a beautiful artistic piece with a tapestry-like picture in the centre; other decorations around it. After that; a series of shots like what's already been in the story; just more of same. Crowd; including children who stare at camera; hanging out at this event with all these banners in the background wherever one looks. Labour; workers; trade unions; organisations.
