  • Short Summary

    Footage of new army recruits at camp in Aldershot, Hampshire.

  • Description

    Soldiers in training. Aldershot, Hampshire.

    World War One. Army life bit from Aldershot. New recruits; not yet in uniform; doing various domestic sort of tasks at Aldershot. First a sort of funny scene of a bunch of boys (and they really do look young; all a bunch of teenagers) crowding around sticking plates underneath a pump - washing dishes.

    CU some guys (these ones look older than that last bunch) washing their hands in a bowl; and splashing water at each other. Then CU man in front of a tent; peeling and eating something - maybe an apple; he holds it on a fork and peels w/ a knife. Food.
