    London.

    Opens with a weird shot; soldier with eye patch sitting in garden by tree; with a woman dressed in 'exotic' Arab or Indian style head-dress; who seems to be examining his hand; like a palm-reader fortune-teller. Another man and woman watch. Next shot of another wounded soldier with bandaged head; playing some game or sport; he is throwing sticks (about a foot long); a group of other men watching; mostly soldiers. Shot of the Bishop of London of course in clerical outfit; shaking hands with soldiers (Highlanders).

    World War one; home front; parties; recreation.
