Oddities. 'Our Cheery Wounded'. Contests for recovering soldier patients and nurses at 3rd London General Hospital; Wandsworth. Silly; wacky; weird; Monty Python type stuff. Opens with part of an obstacle course sequence: front view of men (wearing regular civilian clothes) running to row of covered barrels; diving into them and breaking through the other side; letting loose lots of dust. More men behind them crawl through the barrels.
In BG; some British Army in uniforms and some other guys in shirts and ties all watch. Next; a bobbing-for-apples thing. Shot of a line of enamel bowls lined up on the grass; the men come bounding into the frame; throw themselves over the bowls and try to pick up apple in their teeth. CU of one guy who keeps trying after others are done. Next; a funny race in which blindfolded men run while guided by nurses (in nun's habits) who run behind the guys and hold them by 'reins'! They have to run across a field; circling some folding chairs.
Finally a contest with two men straddling a pole and hitting each other with pillows until one of them loses his balance and falls over; while a group of other soldiers (some with eye patches; etc.) and nurses watch. Comic.
