STK-ID 170

The 1942 Victory Loan is a Brilliant Success: HAMLSs of parading soldiers, bands in Montreal, an American detachment still wearing World War One model steel helmets, tank rolling by. People lining street for similar parade in Ottawa. Cut to two air vice-marshals on reviewing stand, receiving salute, saluting each other, Elgin Hotel visible in background. Shot of soldiers and sailors standing guard in front of the Château Laurier. Two shots of small ceremony celebrating completion of Victory bond drive, Royal Canadian Mounted Police band. TILT UP flagpole to flags of the three services.
