Title:WATFORD MANUFACTURING COMPANY SPORTS (ledger title) [Main Title]
Film Number:IWM 284
Summary: Propaganda film of a company sports meeting in Watford, summer 1918.
Description: The factory workforce (looking remarkably clean) emerges from the gates at the end of a shift, and goes on to the sports. These are a mixture of foot races, handicap races, obstacle races and a tug of war for men and women. None of the competitors wears athletes' clothing, and the absence of young men of military age becomes increasingly noticeable.
