    Irish Guards take part in athletics meeting.

  • Description

    Sports meet for Irish Guards.

    Sports meet; Irish Guards. Opens with a tug of war in progress; shot of one team struggling. Then a weird game in which men ride on each other's shoulders in teams; jousting with other pairs; the guys on top hitting each other with dust mops -- one guy is getting the best of another. Next; guys straddling log over a ditch filled with water; they try to knock each other off into the water--shots of 2 different pairs. The first has one guy hanging under pole by arms and legs while the other pummels him with a sack of something. The second; a guy falls into the puddle. Then at a race for women in uniform -- shot from the finish line of the women racing toward it.
