A brief film showing Lord Derby addressing men of the Ulster Volunteer Force sometime in 1913. Lord Derby had played a leading role in opposing the Parliament Bill which, when it became law in 1911, ensured that the House of Lords could only delay bills (including the Home Rule Bill) for three successive parliamentary sessions and no longer reject them outright. His presence on this occasion was an outward and visible demonstration of Conservative Party support for the Ulster Unionists Party´s measures of resistance to Home Rule. Derby appears 25 seconds into the clip. Three lambeg drums can be seen on the podium, Members of the UVF are singing a hymn - probably ´O God our help in ages past´. Ulster's Guardians of Peace refers to the Ulster Volunteer Force. The UVF was formed in January 1913 by Edward Carson, and was opposed to Home Rule.
