• Short Summary

    Men balance on and flip over the parallel bars in Maidstone and Chiswick.

  • Description

    Titles read: "'Bar work' - filmed at Maidstone County Fair. Lots of things connected with Bars, could hardly be called work. Today, however, we are glancing at the P.T. work of the Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment."

    Maidstone, Kent.

    Various shots of men of the Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment doing movements, routines and balances on the parallel bars. The bars are in the middle of a field enclosure and a large crowd watches. Some of the balances look very complicated with several men involved.

    Intertitle reads: "The London "Poly" men, too, are leaders in bar work. (Filmed at Chiswick)."

    At Chiswick, London, we see more men doing bar work, some in slow motion.
