Summary: The Prince of Wales tours shipyards on Clydeside, probably 5th March 1918.
Description: The riveters work in poor light on a ship's hull. The Prince (in Army uniform) joins them with his party and tries his hand at working with a rivet gun. He moves on through the shipyard and out into the open, being cheered by the workers. At another location he inspects a military parade. Back in the Clydeside area he moves with his party through the streets, watched by a crowd of local people, including children, that the police have difficulty controlling. The Prince passes through the crowd on his way to his car.
