American airmen staying at Stanbridge Earls in Hampshire decide to go for a picnic in the New Forest, which is about 3 miles away. It is decided that half the group will cycle and half the group will travel by jeep, and they will swap over for the return journey. Here, the cyclists check the route on a map in the sunshine before they set off from the grounds of the large country house. Left to right, they are: Captain Bullock, Captain Smith, Lieutenant Baird, Miss Kathleen Deane (one of the American Red Cross hostesses at the home), Lieutenant Broadnax and another unidentified airmen.
