Soldiers participate in sports with mules as entertainment for an audience.
Military Sports at Reading. Soldiers participate in silly sports as entertainment for an audience. Opens with quick shots of unknown sport: jousting in wheelbarrows?! Man wearing only shorts and a medallion on a chain; covered with tattoos; sits in a wheelbarrow holding a long pole; while another man; in overalls stands behind holding handles. Behind them; 2 men in regular clothes; man in jodhpurs & braces; man in shorts & striped shirt. Crowd in BG; fairgrounds type atmosphere. The tattoo man and the overalls man change places and they start off. We never find out what it was about; as it cuts to a funny slapstick comedy contest with the goal of trying to get a stubborn mule through narrow space between sections of fence. Man rides mule toward this gate as crowd watch; the mule goes around instead of through. Cut to shot of 3 men trying with 3 mules; leading instead of riding. Closer shot of same man in shorts & stripes and man in a uniform both pulling on mules.
