  • Description

    Royal Marines.

    Location of events unknown.

    Military exhibition & ceremony. Platform draped w/ fabric; officer dressed in white speaking as others on platform; mostly civilians; listen.

    Next an outdoor exhibition with large crowd of spectators seated in the surrounding stands. Shot looking over hedge at masses of men performing precision exercises.

    Procession on horseback; men wearing various elaborate uniforms w/ those Napoleanic type hats. Horses grouped by colour. A rather impressive equestrian display with alternating lines of horses going in opposite directions; the lines are very close to one another but stay perfectly straight. Next rows of horses move like spokes around a centre group. Then masses of horses all riding by in same direction; all staying in step.
