27th September 1913 at the agricultural showgrounds at Balmoral in south Belfast. This was one of several demonstrations organised by the Ulster Unionist Council to maintain local morale and to show the public in the whole of the United Kingdom the strength of feeling in Ulster against the Third Home Rule Bill. The Ulster Volunteer Force had been formed in January 1913 and the film shows Sir Edward Carson inspecting Unionist Clubs and members of the UVF. With Carson is Lieutenant-General Sir George Richardson, veteran of the the Afghan Wars who had also led the final assault on Peking during the Boxer Rising, who had agreed to become commander-in-chief of the UVF. Also present with Carson and Richardson is Captain James Craig, the Unionist MP for County Down who in 1921 became Northern Ireland´s first Prime Minister. Some Unionist Club members are wearing the traditional Orange sash. Men on motorbikes are members of the UVF Signalling and Dispatch Rider Corps (02:02). The men on horseback (02:10) are probably members of either the Ballymena or the Enniskillen Horse of the UVF. The flag claimed to be the largest Union Jack in the world is unfurled (02:28) - it had made its first public appearance on Easter Tuesday 1912 at Balmoral when the conservative leader, Andrew Bonar Law, had addressed Unionist Clubs.
