• Short Summary

    Men of a Surrey village go hunting for rabbits and shoot a fox.

  • Description

    Titles read: "TRULY RURAL!"

    Surrey.

    Brief shots of a village pub called the Kings Arms. Various shots show men in a country village going on a rabbit hunt. They walk about the forests with their spaniel dogs and shoot at rabbits that have been damaging the country's crops - we don't actually see any rabbits. Commentator says "some of the burrows are as hard to find as the Italian Navy". "A soldier guest" takes a shot at something. Another man shoots a fox. The men stop for lunch and a beer then carry on. Final shot shows the men at dusk, silhouetted against the sky. Two men carry along a stick with several dead rabbits tied to it by their feet.
