  • Short Summary

    Amateurish group of new recruits go through their paces.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "The civic guard. Recruits for the new force in training at Ballsbridge."

    Ballsbridge, Dublin, Eire, Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.

    L/S of large number of men in "civvies" marching in formation. They are a bit ragged. Another shot of the men marching. M/S of men shuffling around trying to get in line. Some then step backwards out of line then turn and step back in. They then jog on the spat. It all looks rather amateurish.
