  • Short Summary

    Wounded men wear costumes and watch silly sports.

  • Description

    Wounded entertained. Location of events unknown.

    Recreation at military hospital. Wounded entertained. Silly stuff. First; a wounded soldier stands holding a crutch while a young woman in a flowing summer dress pins to him a skirt made of newspaper; a bunch of people stand behind him watching. CU she now is finishing a matching jacket. The soldier; a very masculine looking fellow; stands there smiling. Shot of the man in his new print drag creation; w/ another young woman with a big grin. Nurses play a really funny; weird sports game - like they try to move small balloons across field by hitting them with thin sticks.

    Medicine. World War One;
