A short Dufaycolor film made by the Bognor Regis Film Society, which shows celebrations in the town, to mark the Silver Jubilee of George V in 1935. Large crowds line the street to watch as a parade of floats and walking groups processes through the decorated town. Dufaycolor was an early film system that employed a matrix of red, green and blue to produce colour on film. This matrix pattern is clearly in evidence in the online clips.
The film opens with fast-moving shots of a parade to mark the occasion of H M King George V's Silver Jubilee. Elaborately decorated floats, as well as people of all ages on foot and horseback, form the parade line which processes along a wide street that includes several uniformed youth organisations, such as the Scouts and Guides, the British Red Cross, local fire brigade on a decorated engine and other local groups.
The film ends with shots of the parade and large crowds of spectators viewed from a high vantage point on a building overlooking the street, revealing the array of brightly coloured bunting and flags from across Europe.
