  • Description

    Full titles read: "20,000 Eggs, Soot and Flour - used in Battle by Glasgow University Undergraduates at Rectorial Election Rag."

    Glasgow, Scotland.

    M/S of students in old clothes and hats, preparing for the battle! Various shots of the students pelting each other with flour, eggs and soot, sitting on opponents and running about. One shot (which perhaps belongs earlier in the story) shows one side approaching the other before starting to throw their 'bombs'. Several students are seen fighting and tussling on the ground. After the fight, they all stand about, looking soot, flour and egg-splattered and a bit dazed.

    Good 'battle' shots!
