  • Description

    Canadians at Slough - remarkable tent pegging and baseball competition. England.

    Pathe's description says remarkable tent pegging -- what that refers to is soldiers on horseback riding madly toward camera; with a pole as if they are playing polo; and knocking a peg out of the ground. Three men do this. Then CU of a man on pony which turns round a few times and rears up. Canadian soldiers play baseball: Shots of a few batters hitting; running. Then shot of fielder throwing ball.
