    Hundreds of wild animal heads are seen at the British Sporting Exhibition in London.

  • Description

    Titles read: "BRITISH SPORTING EXHIBITION".

    Glasgow, Scotland.

    Various shots of the heads of dead animals mounted on walls at the British Sporting Exhibition to illustrate big game hunting. Some of the heads have cards beside them indicating who shot them; one card reads 'Shot By HM The Queen', a skull with horns has a Nazi swastika flag hanging beside it - from General Hermann Goering. The Earl of Athlone makes a speech about the heads (his collection comes mostly from Africa) and declares the exhibition open; cutaways show the heads of more animals, including a walrus and a stuffed wildcat.
