An amateur film taken in the garden during the early stages of the Second World War. The film-maker records family and friends, most notably a young man from the Fleet Air Arm who was to die whilst on service two years later.
Leslie Moss, dressed in his Fleet Air Arm uniform is filmed in the garden, having his photograph taken by his girlfriend. They are joined by other women, two teenage boys and two young girls, all of whom pose for photographs. Leslie is then shown using model toy planes to demonstrate a dogfight to two of the women. A couple of the women are filmed smoking. The film ends with close-up portraits of Leslie and of shots of him smoking.
