Title:GENERAL DE LISLE PRESENTING MEDALS TO OFFICERS AND MEN [Main Title]
Film Number:IWM 107
Summary: Major-General de Lisle presenting medals, probably Western Front, 1916 (?).
Description: An officer, possibly Major-General H B de Lisle, presenting medals to a kilted battalion, who then march past. A pan over a group from the battalion sitting and smoking. They are possibly the Canadian 16th Battalion (Canadian Scottish).
Technical Details: Format: 35mm
Number of items/reels/tapes: 1
Footage: 398 ft; Running time: 7 mins
Notes: Title: this is taken from the shotsheet.
Cameraman: Malins is given as the cameraman in the store ledger. If this is correct the film was taken either before February 1917, when he retired as a British official cameraman, or after December 1917, when he returned to the Western Front as a Canadian official cameraman.
Summary: all information has been taken from the shotsheet. Nothing further can be discovered about the film, and it is a mystery why de Lisle should present decorations to Canadians.
