  • Short Summary

    Footage of a wartime horse race in a field.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - date and locations unclear or unknown.

    Somewhere in Britain.

    Various shots of the crowd at a wartime horse race. Seems to be in a large sports field rather than a regular track. Bookies take bets. Jockeys mill about before mounting their horses. Low angle shots of the horse race.

    Children dressed in pantomime horse go by. A man dressed as Adolf Hitler seems to be collection money. He stands with a man in German general's uniform and a man dressed as a monkey.

    Horses are paraded before the crowd. Jockeys make their way to their horses and ride to starting point. More shots of a race. Panning shot across jockeys on horses. Jockeys seem to be signing autographs. Man drops white flag (as winner crosses line?).
