Visit of Prince of Wales

1930 , Ipswich (Suffolk)

The Prince of Wales visits Ipswich and opens the Arboretum.

The Prince of Wales is shown landing at Ipswich Airport in his private plane, a Westland Wapiti Ia, J9095. HRH alights from the aircraft and leaves with the Mayor of Ipswich, Mr. A.L. Clouting. There is a welcoming ceremony at the airport. This part of the film is shot over the heads of the crowd and it is difficult to see the Prince's party under the canopy. The Prince travels to Ipswich in a motorcade. The film appears to have been shot from a moving car. The motorcade passes cheering crowds, mainly children, waving flags. The Prince is welcomed at Ipswich School by the Headmaster, Mr. E.C. Sherwood. He opens the Arboretum and is seen walking in the gardens. At the end of the film there is a brief shot of the party entering the Town Hall.
