Unedited rushes record ceremonial parade (unidentified) in presence of the British Colonial Governor and the Royal Navy's Commander-in-Chief, Far East Station, on the Padang, Singapore. Nearby views of the Supreme Court, Victoria Clock Tower and St Andrew's Cathedral.

(Out of sequence) Governor steps out of his car on the Padang, adjusts his helmet and steps into open military land rover to tour the parade area. British women and children throng the spectator area. Governor arrives at the saluting base. Lowering of Union Jack. Flypast overhead. Royal standard flutters on flagpole. British colonial dignitaries shelter from the sun beneath a large dais. Governor takes the salute as the same units parade past (second camera position?).
