    Titles read: 'Oh! LADY DIVINE!'

    Various locations of events.

    Various shots of chorus girls from the Prince of Wales Theatre having fun at the Hampton Court Casino (Taggs Island Casino). The girls are seen in swimsuits, floating on boats on a lake, playing leapfrog and doing handstands.

    At the Press Motor Club Sports in Hurley (Berkshire?), girls throw each other in the water then have pillow fights on a pole over the water and fall in. Some girls take part in a clothes race, swimming from one side of the lake to the other and putting on men's clothes, then swimming back again. The Marquis of Donegal is seen with some girls on a jetty or fixed raft. Two men in swimsuits stand in canoes and fight each other with mops.

    In the United States of America, two girls try log rolling (unfortunately, almost all of this sequence is held out of rack - will need to go back to original film if required). In France a girl does a backbend on the grass, with a man holding onto her feet and bending her back.

    Pathe Studio (London) shots of two women in a boxing match while three others stand around and watch. Footage is speeded up to show them fighting, then lying down on the ground, both supposedly knocked out.

    In the United States of America we see a woman wading into a pool full of alligators. She kicks a few then picks one up and shows it to the camera while tapping it on the nose.
