  • Short Summary

    Foxhounds visit children at Queen Alexandra's Hospital.

  • Description

    A Kindly Thought - Surrey Union fox hounds meet in grounds of Queen Alexandra's Hospital for children suffering from hip disease.

    Location of events unknown.

    Actually the dogs are taken there; they don't just go on their own. This shot looks like a weird dream. Children in row of old beds; which are on a porch - a man in riding habit; holding whip; enters with a bunch of foxhounds; who run around the room like mad; to the children's delight. Nurses watch.

    Then shot of men and dogs coming out of building. Men riding horses on road; with the dogs running along. At the side of road; some soldiers or airmen together; and a couple of old men separately; walk by.

    Sports; animals; medical.
