This film opens with cavalry officers riding onto a open field where, in the distance, a huge line-up of soldiers can be seem standing to attention. We then see a small group of soldiers marching along carrying regimental flags, after which the parade begins. Cavalry officers ride past, followed by armoured vehicles and infantry regiments. We also see regimental bands march past as well as a column of uniformed women marchers from the Women's Auxilliary Army Corps.
