    Sports Gala on Isle of Man.

    Various shots of horse-drawn open tram travelling along main street, carrying lots of men - sports personalities?

    Long line of men seem to be travelling along spectator stand, sitting on a moving conveyor belt. They each get off as they approach camera and shake hands with a man.

    Various sporting personalities greet each other and shake hands. No details in paperwork as to who they are. Two of those featured are Stanley Matthews and Joe Mercer.

    Two men walk towards camera, away from a small house built like a castle. Shot of large building with flags outside.

    The men appear to be going to Cunningham's Camp at Little Switzerland, Douglas. It was I think a men only holiday camp, with men staying in bell tents, but with a huge ballroom/sportshall etc. One of the menlooks a bit like Sir Stanley Matthews the England footballer.
