Filename: National Front Cenotaph march
Classification: Political > Ralles and demonstrations
Recorded by: IM Rawes
Recording date: 11 November 2012
Description: Around 220–250 members and sympathisers of the far-right, white nationalist National Front gather by the Cenotaph for their annual Remembrance Sunday march. Two ex-servicemen wearing the green berets of the Royal Marines vocally object to their presence, but are held back by police. A man tries to engage the recordist in conversation. A steward calls out to the marchers, and they head off along Whitehall to the beating of drums.
Technical guff: In-ear binaural stereo. Soundman OKM II Classic/Studio mics and Sony PCM-M10 recorder.
Additional notes: Thanks to Chris and Richard for their company on the day.
