    Title: "The Crusaders. Remarkable night pictures of Armistice Commemoration Service".

    Interior. M/S of a man in religious robes walking through an arch (inside a church), his cloak is held by two altar boys, a procession of choir boys singing follows. M/S of a procession of men coming through the same arch, they all wear white tabards with black crucifixes on, the man at the front carries a crucifix on a staff. High angled shot of the procession of the men in white tabards, they appear to be coming down a church aisle. C/U of a section of the procession, some of the men carry wreaths.

    Exterior. High angled night shot of the man in robes and his attendants turning a corner around the wall of the church. High angled shot of a man in military uniform leading a small group of boys, one carrying a flag, around the same corner (look like they might be Boys' Brigade), a group of official looking gentlemen follow. Various shots of the men in tabards coming around the corner, some carry wreaths, a small crowd watches the procession, two of the men pause in front of the church. M/S of the two men laying a wreath on a memorial in front of the church, after we see the crowd of onlookers disperse.

    More shots of the procession of men in tabards, they are followed by a group of dignified looking men and women, some of the men wear lawyer's wigs and mayoral chains. More C/U shots of the procession of choristers passing. The rest of the shots are the same or similar to those seen earlier in the item.
