This newsreel set in London shows the Lord Mayor of London arriving at Saint Patrick’s Church. It is the celebration for Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, and Irish women are seen selling flags in the street to passersby. These women were most likely collecting for charitable organisations, like the London Irish Benevolent Society, or for Irish War Widows and Orphans.
