Merrie Territorials

Boisterous Territorial soldiers put on a show in Islington.

Non-Fiction 1915 1 mins Silent


Boisterous Territorial soldiers compete in a sack race and a 'mop fight' at an Islington garden fete in this upbeat wartime item from the Topical Budget newsreel. The crowd is strangely distant and there's no sign of the other entertainments on offer, but the cameraman stays close to the action as the troops blow off steam and give it some welly.
