About this Item

[Scenes of the British royal family]
Other Title
King George and Queen Mary of England
Queen Mary, King George in the uniform of an Admiral of the Fleet, members of the Royal family, a clergyman, and other unidentified people are walking in procession into St. Margaret's Church, Westminster. The occasion is probably "Remembrance Day," Aug. 4, 1918, the fourth anniversary of World War I. The Royal family, joined by the two Houses of Parliament and representatives of the overseas dominions and of the U.S., attend a special service of remembrance and rededication. Queen Alexandra and the Duke of Connaught follow Queen Mary and King George; Princess Mary, wearing a white collar, and Princess Victoria follow. In the second sequence, the Royal party leaves the church followed by members of Parliament. Final sequence consists of brief shots of colonial troops with a British officer.
