This is rough footage of the RAF marching band on the pitch at Wembley before a 1991 fixture between Arsenal and Spurs. The band are shown marching and playing, but occasionally the sound cuts out and the camera switches to the players – including Gary Lineker – warming up before the game. The band play a selection of popular themes to the crowd’s approval, who also chant players’ names.
