The `Wings for Victory' parade, Aylsham, May 1943.

In Aylsham Town Square, various uniformed contingents march into place. The parade is inspected by a high ranking officer. The groups march past the camera. The parade includes nurses, members of the Women's Voluntary Services and Girl Guides; Aylsham town hall and the International Stores are in the background. A lorry laden with milk churns cuts through the groups as they disperse along the street. The film ends with shots of a fly past. These are taken from a distance and it is often not clear what is being filmed. There are some indications of the airfield below.
