  • Short Summary

    Winston Churchill inspects Marlborough 'Boys' at the Royal Tournament at Olympia.

  • Description

    Olympia, London.

    Intertitle: "THE ROYAL TOURNAMENT. Mr. Winston Churchill reviews the Marlborough 'Boys' ... ".

    Exterior. Young men in white T-shirts do acrobatics over horses. Two horses lie obediently on the ground while two boys lean on them and do hand stands. One man in an officer's uniform (Churchill?) watches while another man in military uniform helps some of the boys balance.

    Note: This item contains no C/U or M/S of Churchill. The gymnastics display is very similar to the horse vaulting display in G 671 in story - FOR THE ROYAL TOURNAMENT - that shows gymnasts from the 3rd Brigade R.F.A.
