The King inspects the base groundcrew drawn up on parade. He goes on to enter a hangar, making a point of handing over his matches as he does so. He looks inside the main cockpit of a Handley Page 0/400. Queen Mary can be seen with him, looking over the aircraft.
The captions say that the two ladies, Baroness T'Serclaes and Mairi Chisholm, were injured recently in a gas attack. They are shown leaving on their motorcycle combination to give assistance to a wounded man on a stretcher, then sitting together at a table, talking.
