We still have those home movies and I remember being shown them by my grandmother, Kathleen. My brother has had them copied to DVD.
Some stills of scenes that would have been viewed that evening in March 1933:
|HMS Effingham arriving Colombo Harbour|
|Aden from the Salt Works|
|Aden from the Salt Works (another scene)|
|Mount of Olives, Jerusalem|
|Wailing Wall, Jerusalem|
|Trooping the Colour – 1932|
|Hendon Air Show – 1932|
|Hendon Air Show|
The film of Hendon Air Show I found particularly fascinating.
|Hendon Air Show – Westland-Hill Pterodactyl flying wing – probably version iv, an experimental tailless aircraft|
|Hendon Air Show – gyrocopter?|
The pictures of Whitmore would seem to be those that were the backdrop for a comedy film called “A Run for his Money”. Unfortunately I am not able to capture any meaningful stills of Whitmore – the village and lake featured in the film as well as the grounds of Whitmore.
|Kathleen played the heroine Elsie Oozegold|
|Rafe Cavenagh-Mainwaring played the heroine’s father Isaac Oozegold, a Steel Magnet (sic 😉 )|
