Military Athletic Meeting (1916) - First World War | BFI. Subscribe: http://bit.ly/subscribetotheBFI.

Allied troops participate in an athletics event at Stamford Bridge during a brief respite from the horrors of the front line in this story from an early edition of the Topical Budget newsreel - released in May 1916 at the height of the Great War. Here, Gunner H. Phillips of the Canadian Regiment proves victorious in the 100-yard sprint, while the water jump presents quite an obstacle for some athletes.
