Two young girl swimmers train for a cross channel attempt.
Miss Ivy Hawke (19) and Miss Doris Hines (16) are two cross channel swimmers. They are both "anxious to show how Eve can get along without a buoy".
Shots of the girls swimming and one drinking from a mug whilst treading water. One of the girls approaches a small boat, is given something to eat then swims off again. Their trainer Kellingley joins them in the water. We see the girls as they climb out of the water on to the beach and take their swimming hats off, M/S of them smiling at the camera.
