    Cataloguer's note: some might view the commentary to this item as racist. Lines such as this are typical: "And just to show these coloured men are not off colour there is an obstacle race and nothing short of a steel trap can hold these duskies". Narrator also refers to the men as "Sambo". AH 2001.
