    Soldiers take part in military sports day at Seaford.

  • Description

    Military Sports at Seaford, East Sussex.

    Bare-chested soldiers on horseback on sports ground. Military officers watch as the men try to knock each other off their horses. Troops and civilians in background.

    Soldiers wearing shorts and T-shirts in running race and coming over finishing line. Pairs of soldiers in strange race - one runs along on hands and feet while the other runs alongside them with a piece of string tied to the other's waist. Soldiers putting the shot.

    High jump - a man in a clown costume and make-up runs towards the high jump and then straight past it! It looks very funny! Several men take the high jump.
