New recruits get their equipment. 1st London Regiment. CU 4 men in suits; then pan down line of new recruits. Next; shot of soldiers wearing their Army hats & coats now; leaning over; picking up items from piles in front of them; bedding; long underwear; and other things -- parts of their kit. Oddly they seem to just put them in another pile in back of them. Next; shot of soldiers marching out doors of building -- Headquarters; carrying duffel bags -- so they did manage to get their stuff packed up.
