  • Description

    Bank Holiday sports carnival held as benefit for disabled veterans, location of events unknown.

    Good shots throughout. Soldiers in dark trousers and white shirts do exercise drill with rifles before spectators in stadium. They grasp rifles with both hands and lift them above their heads while lunging to right & left, like callisthenics.

    Children's sports: 2 little boys boxing with gloves in the ring, spectators in background. 2 sprinters running towards camera in a race. VS jockeys riding donkeys in fun race.

    Note: duplicate version of ON 29 D.
