  • Short Summary

    Footage of US soldiers boxing and wrestling.

  • Description

    US soldiers in training. Location of event unknown.

    World War One; sports. US soldiers boxing; wrestling; etc. Pan across field where a lot of men in loose pants & sweatshirts are boxing in pairs; hopping; dodging around; throwing punches; many others stand in BG. Sort of like a combination of an exercise drill and a mass fight. Then pairs of men straddle a fence (well really just the top board on top of posts) and box in that position; trying to knock each other off. Soldiers wrestle on a mat on the grass as other American troops sit & stand in BG; clapping and cheering; a referee stands on the mat. CU the wrestlers in action.
