Summary
MOVIETONE CARD TITLE: Kashmir Team Beats Army Side at Polo. SHOTLIST: Shots of play. Commentary: At Aldershot, a special Ascot week polo match is played between the Aldershot Command Team, wearing peaked caps, and the Maharaja of Kashmir’s team - in topees. Captain Sanger is playing No 3 for the Kashmiri side, which also included Captain Roark, of International fame (No 2). The Maharaja’s team scores first and definitely outplays the army side after the first two chuckers. The Maharaja himself is playing back. The conditions for polo are rotten, rain falling during the game, and the ground being dead. Final score: Kashmir 11 goals Aldershot Command 5.
