Description: Coverage of various badminton matches in the Kelvin Hall, Glasgow. The Thomas Cup is presented by Sir George Thomas.

Tournament took place in Glasgow's Kelvin Hall. Owing to inadequate lighting (i.e. for filming purposes) and the restrictions of the camera to one set position, the results are not ideal, but were the best obtainable in the circumstances at date of match (both as regards lighting and filmstock at that time).
