Description:I. WRAFs wait outside the railings of the Savoy Hotel in London. The police hold back a civilian crowd as a horse-drawn coach comes up to the hotel and the Queen gets out. The WRAF members begin to form into their squads as the guard of honour. Queen Mary emerges from the hotel, is given a bouquet of flowers and the WRAF officers are presented to her. II. Officers and sergeants of the RAF eating at a formal banquet. WRAFs line up for a pay-parade. Men of the RAF wait outside a barracks and play with two dogs. They are curious about the camera's presence. Indoors, they play billiards, and some of them read letters.
Members of the WRAF and RAF, both at the Savoy as the guard of honour and relaxing in their camp at Uxbridge, April 1919.
