  • Short Summary

    Naval pensioners play bowls.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Fighting their battles o'er again…But on the bowling green. Naval pensioners meet and defeat Chelsea pensioners at bowls."

    Belvedere, Kent

    M/S pensioners, one wearing a cap makes a bowling shot, watched by other bowlers and spectators - some in military uniform. Various shots of the game and elderly players, some shout encouragement or signal and point. Shots of the bowl balls on the green, and the bowler taking shots. Plenty of knee bends by the old men. Finally a lady in a flowery hat presents a cup to the winning team.

    Note: Great shots of typical bowling stances.
