  • Description

    Full title reads: "Scotland. 'Not so quiet on the students battle front!' Rival supporter of the two candidates for Rectorship of Aberdeen University fight pitched battle with peacemeal and soot!"

    Aberdeen, Scotland.

    Two groups of students march carrying banners and flags.

    The two opposing groups gather flour bombs and bags of soot from boxes they have carried in.

    They line up on either side of what is presumably a University square and finally run towards each other throwing their materials. The scene disappears in a cloud of flour and soot and the occasional student.

    A large scrum of students push and pull as one of the flags they were carrying is trapped against the wall and opponents try to seize it. More scenes of flour throwing.

    One group of students appears to have captured a flag and are waving it in triumph.
