  • Description

    French (?) ski troops in alpine setting. Also seen hauling casualty on stretcher sledge.

    Location of events unknown - could be French or Italian Alps?

    World War One. Blue Devils Ski patrollers. First four soldiers armed with rifles ski down mountain path through trees with branches covered with snow (pretty). Very quick shot of someone skiing across open space. Then a ski patrol on a rescue mission. Group of skiers coming across a slope, pulling a sled with an injured person on it. Beautiful scenery, mountain in background. Shot of the group going by a barn with snow on roof. Slanting sunlight makes long shadows of the skiers in the snow.
