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).
