    Wounded soldiers play tennis.

  • Description

    Wounded playing tennis. Location of events unknown.

    Wounded soldiers play tennis. Shot of men playing doubles; from behind one of the pairs. And not doing very well. Australian loses his hat. Shot of another team: soldier with one arm probably in a cast; bulging underneath the front of his jacket while sleeve hangs loose and an older man not in the regulation British military hospital suit and with a white moustache on a tan face.

    Another shot of the man with the injured arm hitting the ball. (After some flash frames - some camera problem) shot of wounded man hopping on one leg and hitting the ball. Camera stays on him for a few volleys. (More flash frames); then the group of tennis players walk toward camera; between hedges.

    World War One; sports.
