A Visitor from the Past, 1959

Made for the College’s Centenary in 1959, this fascinating film presents a year in the life of Wellington College at that date, imaginatively framed as a visit from the 1st Duke of Wellington. Content includes cricket, athletics, swimming, rugby and the Kingsleys; scenes of dormitory life including ‘fug rugger’, a ‘brew up’ and a ‘fag call’; and a CCF inspection.
