Summary

The 12th Infantry Brigade march from Dover to Arundel in this film by Charles Goodwin Norton of 1899.

Description

Title cards read "Thomas Atkins Puts Best Foot Forward - 12th Infantry Brigade, on 100-mile economy march from Dover, completes last stage at Arundel".

A marching band is seen on the sea front. The footage is shot from an elevated position. Spectators are seen along the road. A middle-distance shot of an individual participant in the march is shown. Arial footage follows, taking in homes in the coastal town and the parade along the promenade. Back on the ground, boys on bicycles move along side Infantry Brigade. The camera pans across a large crowd of spectators lining the road. Arial footage of the march through Arundel follows, taking in the castle, street decorations and marching participants.
