A glimpse of life as Governor of Northern Ireland. This film allows the viewer to experience the affairs of the Governor and his wife. The industrious pace of the Ulster mills intersects with serene rural prospects and ceremonial spectacles. In a darkened factory, raw flax is transformed into the iconic Irish linens which are inspected in the sunlight.
Meanwhile, the Governor and his wife inspect the Royal Enniskillen Fusiliers and meet the nurses at the District Hospital. Finally after a whirlwind of hand-shaking and small talk, they cruise home to Government House in the Wakehurst’s car.
