Description

This film is part of the Nowell collection and was made by amateur filmmaker Fred Brackenbury. This film captures a group of young men who are on a camping trip.

Several tee-pee style tents have been pitched in a field alongside large utility tents. Young men help to finish pitching a tent while some other men sit in a tent polishing brass.

A man wheels a wooden cart across the camp towards the camera; inside it there are crates of beer and boxes of sweets. In another part of the camp four boys climb a dead tree and pose at the top. Following this, the groups of boys gather outside their tents.

A boy's marching band makes their way along a road and then there is a shot of a man blowing a bugle.
