Title:WRENS MARCH PAST HM THE QUEEN AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 436
Summary: Mute film of a parade of the WRNS at Buckingham Palace.
Description: Watched by a rather sparse crowd the Wrens march up the Mall to the Palace where they are reviewed by the Queen, Duchess of Kent, 1st Lord of the Admiralty, and Director of the WRNS. The Queen inclines her head graciously. Royal Marine Band plays. When the march past has ended the crowds approach the rostrum upon which the Queen stands - a news photographer crosses the foreground of the picture, holding his camera. The film then reverts to the parade in a long sequence which emphasises the large numbers involved. Camera pans across the crowds of spectators and holds on two Indian sailors of the Royal Indian Navy. Cut to crowds surrounding the Queen after the march past - mounted policeman in the foreground. Queen leaves. Cut to Westminster Abbey - Wrens arrive, Queen inspects a parade and greets clerical dignitaries.
