  • Short Summary

    Men of the London Scottish regiment swim across the River Thames at rural location.

  • Description

    The London Scottish crossing River Thames during a route march.

    London (looks like Richmond or similar area - quite rural).

    Shots out of order. Opens w/ MS of a few men on beach taking off their kilts! 2 men dive into water. Another follows (startles ladies in boat in BG). The group of kilt-less Scotsmen (they do have shorts on) swims across river; toward a raft in distance (this is out of order part - should be last).

    A raft approaching; crossing river; carrying a whole crowd of guys in kilts playing bagpipes - the rest of the London Scottish. The swimmers are now moving the raft with poles; still wearing the old-fashioned swimsuits or shorts. They arrive at shore; come marching off (should be middle part).

    Raft approaching; w/ just the swimmers on board w/ their poles. London Scottish all getting on the raft; carrying bagpipes.
