A crowd of onlookers at a sports day organised by the Black Watch Regiment. The spectators include some of the competitors, members of the Black Watch who were not taking part and a number of women and children, possibly from a nearby farm, town or village. A day such as this would have provided some light relief for those at the Front.
Some of events at this particular sports day included a pillow fight, a rifle grenade competition, a gas helmet race, collecting rings using a bayonet and a children's race.
