    Full title reads: "Aldershot "COOKHOUSE DOOR" - 1934! - Soldier Cooks contests for Army Championship."

    Aldershot, Hampshire.

    Army cooks in chef uniforms in groups of twos and threes gathered around open air cookers and stoves - most brick laid (clay oven style) for the Army cooks contest. Several closer shots of the chefs cooking.

    An army of chefs leaves a building with full baking trays in their hands - possibly pastries. They lay trays into brick laid outdoor oven.

    Several shots of judges inspecting the food - main judge in civilian clothes.

    Several chefs around the table with pieces of food lined up nicely for inspection - one piece is on the other side of the table. An officer asks where is it, one of the chefs says that it is coming. Close up shot of a piece of food arriving across the table. Chef places it neatly.

    A chef walking with a tray of puddings, passes a young cook who asks him a question. As an answer he produces 'wind passing' noise. Young cook continues cleaning.
