  • Description

    White City Stadium, London.

    Various shots of new auxiliary firemen putting on a display of fire fighting at the 36th Annual Athletic Meeting of the London Fire Brigade. In the trailer pump competition they assume a bomb has struck a house, so bring out a dummy woman and put her on a stretcher, then work to put out the fire with hoses.

    We then see the men 'tilting the bucket' (poking a bucket of water with a pole while being pushed underneath it in a wheelbarrow). A line of firemen are handed prize cups by a smartly-dressed lady.
