    'Cup-Tie' game at a Surrey War Hospital with the patients playing the nurses

  • Description

    Patients V Nurses - Cup-tie game at a Surrey war hospital.

    Opens with nurse and patient team captains shaking hands. before the match in a garden or field (not a proper pitch or sports ground). Shot of nurse kicking ball; toward camera. All the nurses wear long dresses and Red Cross aprons. GV match in progress; with patients and nurses running around - most of the patients are not obviously injured; but there is one man with a cane.

    More football; exercise; recreation. Ball is kicked toward man on crutches in FG; who loses the crutches trying to get it; then hops around getting the crutches back - pretty funny. Pan to the rest of the people - a man falls down - chaos reigns for a second there.

    World War One; sports; medical.

    G 396 B.
