• Short Summary

    A military marching band, tent-peggers and gymnasts are seen at the Aldershot Army Display.

  • Description

    Aldershot, Hampshire.

    Several shots of a military band marching along and playing as part of the Aldershot Army display. Various shots of soldiers on motorbikes and horses trying to pick pegs from the ground with long poles as they speed past (commentator describes it as 'tent-pegging'). Another soldier climbs an artificial wall. Men in white gymnasts gear run onto the display ground; they turn somersaults over gym apparatus and vault over each other.

    This may have been a rehearsal; we do see a few shots of the crowd but the audience looks rather sparse.
