    Australian soldiers get up a game of Australian football.

  • Description

    Australian Football.

    Location of events unknown.

    Australian soldiers get up a game of Australian football. Shot of the players heading toward the field; a few other guys in Army uniforms stand watching. The match in progress. Man in army uniform serving as referee; bringing down a flag as a signal.

    Great shot of Aussie soldiers watching the game from an outdoor balcony; above a sign advertising whisky; and another for 'tyres'; they start waving. Some irrelevant brief military shots within this piece.

    World War One; sports.

    G 399.
