We begin with schoolboy cadets marching towards the town centre for a military parade. Throughout the film pupils from Eastbourne College play a variety of sports including rugby, athletics, cross-country running, cricket and rowing on the River Ouse. We join boys on a train leaving Eastbourne station and also on a coach trip. At Eastbourne's seafront large crowds watch the Duke of Edinburgh arrive for a military parade and a fly-past by RAF Meteor jets.
