Boys' Brigade Street Procession

Boys' Brigade Street ProcessionThis Boys' Brigade procession through the streets of Sutton begins with some young men holding a banner flag reading 'The Boys Brigade/Mid Surrey'. More uniformed boys stood to attention on a shopping street, as a flag bearer and two attendants process by (in the background is a bare plot of land being sold by Parkins & Co. of Cheam Village for maisonettes to be built upon). The marching Boys' Brigade Brass Band is followed by Boys' Brigade leaders (in the background is a shop called Shirley's selling cigarettes and chocolates). The procession of boys, lead by the band, marches down the road, through an area of housing, down another shopping street (the shops include Davis Photographic Ltd and Lester Bros Tailors) and into Sutton Baptist church on Cheam Road. Outside the church, a Boys' Brigade leader salutes the marchers. The film ends with the marchers walking up a slight hill in a residential area.
