Scenes filmed by Michael Gillings at the Tower of London and River Thames while on a family outing to London, and at his Patcham home in the garden, where his son plays with the dog.


A Raven ruffles its feathers at the Tower of London. A Beefeater stands at the entrance on guard. Armed servicemen march in formation. The White Tower is seen from ground level in panning footage. Tower Bridge, nearby, is also seen from this vantage point. Views of London from the bridge follow. Neville, the son of the film-maker, plays fetch and football with a dog in the families garden in Patcham.
