  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. 'Merry goes the day when the heart is young.' 'No mercy given or required' in Northampton Institute Students Annual 'Battle for the Carrot' Rag."

    London.

    Students form a 'conga-line' and parade around in front of their building.

    A group of students walk in carrying a long coloured sack which is stuffed. Presumably this is meant to represent a carrot. It is thrown up in the air and the students start to scrap over it.

    Real rag style flour and egg throwing ensues. Students are getting covered in soot and flour and all manner of other dirt. The carrot sack is still in the midst of their brawl.

    The dirty students form back into their line and once again begin to parade around.

    Students gather round and cheer.
