Official ceremony and reception for unknown soldier in town of Warrington.
Official ceremony and reception for unknown soldier (could be William Young V.C.) in town of Warrington, Cheshire.
World War One; military; celebration. Opens with shot of several people on balcony with Union Jack draped over rail. A soldier in uniform seems to be the hero, and a man wearing a big gold pendant (Lord Mayor?) shows soldier a big white placard (illegible). Then the Lord Mayor type seems to be leading the crowd in a cheer; swinging his hat in the air for the 'hip-hip-hoorays'.
Parade. Marching band approaching round a corner, followed by soldiers on foot and then a carriage in the back of which sit the honouree and the Mayor. More army men follow. C/U the hero, a moustached army officer, and the Lord Mayor sitting in the back of the carriage which is parked on street. Our hero looks at camera and grins. They sit talking.
