Ladies and gentlemen gather to hear a speaker at a courtyard in Wales, during World War I
Wales United Kingdom Date:1916 Duration:48 sec Sound:NO SOUND
British men and women entering a building in Wales, UK. They assemble before a stage at the back of the building. Participants are well dressed and constitute a dignified gathering. A gentleman addresses them. British flags displayed and a sign stretched across the top of the stage reads, in Welsh: "adgofion mebyd ein gwron,gwron y byd." ( childhood memories of our hero, the hero of the world ). The gathering may be of political nature and the sign may allude to David Lloyd George who spent his childhood in Wales.(He was Secretary of State for War and then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at the head of a wartime coalition government, beginning in 1916.) Following the meeting, participants come out of the front entrance, and pose momentarily for the cinematographer, before continuing on their way.
