    Item title reads: " Nottingham's Annual hospital 'Rag'."

    Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

    M/S of a procession of motor lorries, as they file through the streets with students on tractors acting out various themes, such as a mock chemist and students dressed as babies on a horse drawn cart. They stage a mock bullfight with people in costume, one dressed as a bull. L/S of students in various historical costumes waving to the crowd. A pitched battle takes please with bags of flour being thrown, and some of the onlookers, including policemen join in as well. They grab the policeman in a sort of scrum and whirl him round.

    Note: Fantastic footage of the battle - it's a bit of a bun fight, with police joining in - but all in good fun. Good student stunt.
