    Eton Wall Game played on St Andrew's Day at Eton College.

  • Description

    Eton, Windsor, Berkshire

    St Andrew's Day at Eton. 'Ophidians' and 'Collegers' play traditional 'Wall Game'. Shot of a group (15-20) teenage boys gathered by a long wall in a park engaged in a really odd activity; pushing and pulling and climbing on one another to no end I can see. More boys sit on top of the wall; turning their heads to watch the game below. DS a whole lot of spectators behind a rope in the park. Cut back to the boys doing God knows what.
