Incredible color footage there Randy! Another reason why we collect and enjoy displaying toy soldiers.

Randy - although your link is great because it records one of the earliest uses of color film, it has also opened a whole world of B&W movies that I have never seen before.

The 1997 Diamond Jubilee: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch3zMCBUmpk
Victoria's Funeral: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxITTmIR-HQ
The 1903 Durbar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcKgkCuN2gE
King Edward's Funeral in 1910: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQRzmvr5ZxE
Another from the 1911 Durbar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsROlr0WXmc

There are probably many more.
