    Titles read: 'ANOTHER HOBBY - Match Boxes!'

    Location of events unknown - could be Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of Major Pat A'Beckett and his enormous collection of matchboxes. We first see him striking a match to light his cigarette, then looking closely at the matchbox cover.

    He gets up from his chair and we see the walls are completely covered in matchbox covers! (Seems to be studio set.) He checks the walls to see if he has this cover already.

    He then leafs through several large sheets of paper covered with matchbox covers. M/S of some covers with one showing King George V when he was the Prince of Wales. C/U of a cover showing Queen Victoria and others of the royal family. More C/Us of covers from all over the world.
