Description

This is a film made by Vaughan and Co. of Hull of Victory Day 1946, possibly in Ottringham, East Riding.

Title – A few glimpses of events
Produced by Vaughan & Co, Hull, Yorkshire

The film begins with a procession of children in fancy dress, one boy carrying a banner for ‘Victory Day 1946.’  Another has a "Mr Chad" cartoon on a board, “Wot? Bread rationing. Wot Next?”. They are followed by groups of adults. 

Now in a field, two small boys also have cartoon attire, with one saying, “Wot no coupons”.  They are ushered past the camera in single file.  One boy is on a tricycle decked out in Union Jacks, while two girls push small prams.  A small group of women make up the rear.
