    Artillery Sports at Woolwich.

    Greater London.

    Opens with men on horses lined up side by side half face forwards; half backwards; they move around in a circle keeping the line straight. Then they breakaway and ride off in different directions. Pan across field where boys are doing exercises. Shot of the men high-stepping across field (as if running through tyres).

    Bare-chested men on horseback wrestle or at any rate try to knock or pull one another off. CU's of this game: men sort of slapping at each other. MS locked in a hold; while sitting on horses. One man pulling the other one onto the same horse; then slipping over the horse's back until they both fall off; which looks funny.
