  • Short Summary

    Young students at Eton brave mud and barbed wire to exercise a pack of beagles.

  • Description

    Item title reads - Schoolboy sportsmen. Heavy going - mud a plenty - barbed wire - but give me "beagling before books" says "Young Eton". Berkshire.

    L/S as Eton students in their uniforms and caps walk round the corner, a pack of beagles runs along side. M/S as the boys climb over some barbed wire. M/S as they climb across a tree branch and jump over a stream, one boy's hat falls in the river as he jumps. M/S of the beagles running about on the field and wading through the mud, a boy chases them. M/S as the boys walk across the mud through a gate.

    M/S of the boys and the hounds walking through a gate and onto a muddy track, one boy runs off. M/S of the boys walking or running down the road, more shots of them climbing over the barbed wire and walking down the road with their beagles. L/S of the boys walking through a field.

    Note: the latter half of this item looks like it could be cuts from the story.
