    Titles read: "A Darts Derby".

    London.

    Various shots of a darts competition between the locals of the 'Prince of Wales' and the 'Oxford Arms' pubs in the Old Kent Road. Men take their turns at throwing darts while a small group of men and women watch; M/Ss of darts going into the dart board. One of the players gets only one dart on the board - his team-mates crowd around and hit him on the head and shoulders - in a good-natured kind of way.

    The winning team pose with an elderly woman holding their trophy - the Championship Cup of the London League. They seem to be singing 'For He's A Jolly Good Fellow'.
