  • Short Summary

    Fun in the snow for soldiers at a military academy in Culver.

  • Description

    Item title reads:" S'no use studying. When the snow is on the ground. Young warriors of Military Academy abandon desks for snow battlefield."

    Culver, United States of America (USA).

    M/S snowy conditions with some men on horseback on a circular track, pulling others along on skies. Some fall off as they go round the bend. A long line of silhouetted men on a small ridge hold their skies aloft in unison in some sort of cheer. They all hold hands and ski down the slope, some fall. One man attempts a down hill ski with a jump to be made over a small mound made of snow. He makes a straggly launch and falls hopelessly. Next the regiment are divided into two armies and rush towards each other in a massive snowball fight - its looks as if they are playing in driving snow.

    Note: The down hill ski holding hands looks like an impossible team effort, but very funny.
