  • Short Summary

    People have fun skating on a frozen pond - some look like professionals.

  • Description

    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unknown / unclear.

    Probably filmed somewhere in Britain.

    Various shots of people skating on a frozen pond or lake. The cameraman appears to be on skates too.

    Girls in skating skirts and dresses do spins for the camera. A man skating about wears army or air force uniform. A man on a bicycle has fallen over on the ice. The RAF (?) man rides about on the ice on the bike. Then he and one of the girls do some ice-dancing.

    A little boy in glasses is led to the ice by his mum then goes tearing about on his skates and won't come off again. One of the girls walks up to the pond in a furry coat, takes the guards off her skate blades and gets onto the ice.

    Year 1945/1946?
