This black and white film shows officers from the Queen's Royal (West) Surrey Regiment dressed in uniform and civilian clothing playing games and generally messing about on a camp. (continued from TID: 8972)
The films open with officers from the Queen's Royal (West) Surrey Regiment dressed in uniform and civilian clothing, playing games and generally messing about on a camp (?) (continued from TID: 8972). With men being towed by a car around the camp, as they sit in a tin bath.
In the next sequence, a car crests the hill above the camp, the camera follows as it winds along the path. A man is standing at the top of the hill to meet it. The car is possibly still towing the tin bath with a man inside (?).
In the following sequence, several officers (two of rank) carry a piano through the camp. Placing it down on a dirt track, they briefly play a piece of music and then carry it away. A YMCA flag is behind them attached to one of the tents.
In the final film an officer walks around dressed only in a towel holding a horse crop, he gestures towards the camera for the operator to stop recording, while others dressed in full uniform loiter around the tents, picking up abandoned clothing from the grass.
