  • Description

    Location unknown - possibly Scotland.

    Military. London Scottish Cross River. Group of Soldiers; in kilts coming ashore. Then shot of men swimming across river. Men in old-fashioned swimsuits on a boat they are moving with large poles. Pan on another boat crowded with soldiers; wearing life jackets. They get out of boat. But next; we see the boat full of them crossing the river. On the beach; a couple of the Scottish strip off all their clothes. Then a scene of the soldiers stretched out on the grass having a picnic; relaxation; etc (this is very nicely shot). Man passing around food. One man has a bottle of beer. Woman in long white dress walks by in BG. CU of some of the guys standing up in their picnic spot. This entire story seems out of sequence.
