  • Description

    Tallest Man In Football.

    Location of events unknown.

    New recruits in British Army include Tallest Man in Football. CU tall man standing between 2 shorter guys; he rests elbow on one of their shoulders; they both are laughing. Pan on group of football players; wearing identical sweaters standing on a courtyard or parade ground - waving; a soldier stands in FG. These guys have evidently joined up - they are now standing in rows; carrying Army uniforms - at least partial - they set these on ground in little piles; then all pivot to face front; march off in 2 lines.

    Next; a shot of the men doing a silly dance; kicking up legs high to sides - on lawn with large building in BG. Funny. Then they stand in lines and do more regular exercises - deep knee bends.
