  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. 'Hallowe'en' (filmed for the first time). The famous London Scottish celebrate the festival 'according to 'ancient manner and custom".

    London.

    Interior shots of dinner to celebrate Hallowe'en. Bag pipe players walk around the edge of the dining room. A dish and bottles of whisky are carried in. The dinner rises to make a toast.

    Intertitle reads: "Everyone from C.O. to new recruit has to go ... and good 'go' too ... at 'ducking for apples'."

    Men of the London Scottish regiment climb and force their way to reach apples from a vat. One officer is lifted shoulder high. The men all sing linked arms, as if singing Auld Lang Syne.
