A donkey race and a light-the-cigarette race provide plenty of amusement for the wounded Tommies from the Hospitals'.

The process is repeated with different men and women over the same course in a relay. Some of the women's cigarette lighting technique is a little patchy. LS down the track as women run a race - there is little concession to athleticism as all the contestants wear long dresses and some are in bonnets.
