Spectators at the Royal Tournament. An audience, comprised largely of young boys, anticipates the start of the military performance about to take place at the Royal Tournament. Units from the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force carried out contests, re-enactments, and performed military music to the public during the summer tournament each year.
The tournament began in Islington, moving to Olympia in the early 1900s and to the larger Earl's Court after the Second World War. The Royal Tournament was staged for the last time in 1999.
