    Story about rope spinning.

    "Boys of the New Brigade" demonstrate their rope spinning expertise. M/S of a boy doing stunts with a lasso. A row of boy scouts and an akela watch as the rope is spun around his body. The scout (who actually looks in his early 20s) jumps backwards and forwards through the hoop. We then see part of his routine in slow motion.

    "A lot of hard work was needed to attain the proficiency of Scout Betts and his colleagues." We then see Betts skipping rope at the same time as twisting the hoop around his body. A union jack flies in the background. Slow motion footage of this feat. "Another hard task for the rising generation... " Another scout puts Betts on his shoulders as he continues to spin his rope. The man underneath then spins his own rope.
