U.S. Navy contingents comprise most marchers in a Victory Loan parade in New York City. Crowds on the sidewalks watch a U.S. Coastguard color guard with shouldered rifles march past carrying the American flag and Coast Guard Anchorage flag. Behind them a temporary arch with Red Cross symbols is stretched across the avenue. An advertisement for Sivertown cord tires is stretched across, above the arch. The Coast Guard contingent marks time briefly and then continues. From the opposite side of the avenue, a U.S. Navy band is seen marching to cadence of a snare drum only. They are followed by Women Yeomen (F) of the U.S. Naval Reserve. Next is seen a large contingent of U.S. Navy men, carrying shouldered rifles. A large sign at the sidewalk reads: "They are finishing their job, Are you? Invest in Victory." An open busload of sailors and some soldiers passes, followed by an open truck filled with farmers in overalls, carrying a sign. Two marines ride on opposite running boards of the truck. A float is seen. Scene shifts to views from behind the parade. Victory Bond posters are fastened to lamp posts. Flags and long banners are displayed. A huge sign across a building reads: "New York will see it through." View to oncoming parade, again, shows U.S. Navy Nurses marching, followed by their own bugle corps (not playing). A Navy band follows (not playing) and then some more women Yeomen (F). U.S. Marines in campaign hats, carrying shouldered rifles, come next. They are followed by a squad of New York City mounted policemen. More Women yeomen,some in black hats and some wearing ties and white hats.
