This film captures the conclusion of a royal visit to the RAF base at Hillingdon House, a Victorian stately home that the Royal Air Force had occupied in various guises since 1917. The King and Queen shake hands before clambering inside a car, then wave regally while soldiers cheer and a man runs into the road behind them to take a picture of the departing vehicle.
