  • Short Summary

    Soldiers diving into a river.

  • Description

    1st Surrey Rifles Sports and Recreation.

    Location of events unknown.

    Several shots of soldiers during some kind of diving and balancing content. A group of soldiers are crowded onto a bridge over a river with a large building behind them. A man in an old-fashioned swimming costume stands on a high, makeshift diving board and dives into the river. The next man walks slowly along a lengthy pole that sticks out over the water. The object seems to be to try to get to the end before losing your balance and falling in. Several others follow. Some are able to turn their fall into a dive while others just plop into the water.

    Silly; fun; slapstick.

    Modified WPA record.
