This Gaumont briefie served no purpose other than to massage the viewer's laugh muscles. A tramp finds an abandoned medal on the sidewalk. Pinning it on his lapel, he is seized with heroic fervor, and vows to earn the right to wear the medal. Like a Boy Scout gone berserk, the hero attempts to rescue several people who are in no need of rescuing, and putting out fires that don't exist. For his troubles, the would-be hero is soundly beaten by a mob of pedestrians.
