    Irish girls pin shamrocks on the caps and coats of British soldiers.

  • Description

    St Patrick's Day - Irish colleens proudly pin a sprig of shamrock on wounded Tommies.

    Location of events unknown.

    Nice shot of two girls in traditional costume (aprons, long skirts and capes) handing shamrocks from large baskets to soldiers. We then see the girls pinning sprigs of shamrock onto the coats and caps of the men. The soldiers don't look obviously wounded. A few smoke cigarettes.
