This film shows several Sussex based Scouting groups (Boy Scout and Sea Scout) setting up camp near the village of Small Dole, Sussex, and undertaking demonstrations and drills. This film features several patrols of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Sea Scouts from across the Sussex District.


The film opens with mixed shots of several Sussex based Boy and Sea Scout groups setting up camp in a field near the village of Small Dole, Sussex. A group of Boy Scouts in full kit return to camp carrying large backpacks and walking poles, followed by wide views of a camp inspection and portrait shots of several Boy Scouts outside their tents. A close up of a stoneware jug trophy follows, carefully placed on top of a bell in a field.

The next sequence opens with the entire camp gathered around the main camp flag pole for presentations and speeches by several Scouting leaders. The stoneware trophy is presented to a Sea Scout by a Scout leader who shakes his hand in return. The film ends with the group singing as the Union flag is lowered on the flag pole.
