    Disabled war veteran practises walking with crutches at Ellerman's Hospital.

  • Description

    Ellerman's Hospital.

    Location of events unclear / unknown.

    Man walking with crutches down short corridor towards camera. His arms are doing all the work; he lurches forward on the crutches; then drags his legs along behind. But he sets quite a fast pace and looks very pleased.

    He stops; breaks into a happy grin and hits one fist into the other palm. Then he turns and lurches back. Another back and forth run. Next the man doing some more practise / exercise outdoors in a garden. He is probably a disabled veteran who was wounded in World War One.
