• Short Summary

    Young children do formation exercises in the studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Master Athletes in miniature! Meet Capt. Olsson's Merry Sprites, famous in Bath and the West Country for their Physical Training exhibitions."

    Probably filmed in the Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of a troop of young children in white vests and shorts doing exercises in formation. One of the team stands at the front and shouts instructions. Then we see the children leaping over each other and off boxes into the arms of Captain Olsson. Some shots are in slow motion.

    The children turn handstands and forward roll over a box as Olsson stands by watching. Final shot shows them standing back to back and holding onto a barbell, then one child rolls over the back of their partner.

    Note: soundtrack is out of synch and may need adjusting if required.
