    Near Salisbury, Wiltshire.

    American airforce men run a U.S. style summer camp for boys with a red Indian theme.

    Various shots of boys doing craft work around an outdoor table, they are supervised by a young American airman. Various C/Us of the boy's work - mostly leather carving and making moccasins - all traditional 'Indian' crafts.

    C/U of an arrow hitting a target decorated with a wild cat. C/U of a man dressed as red Indian holding a bow. Various shots of the man instructing a small group of boys in archery.

    Panning shot of boys serving themselves food from an outdoor barbecue hut. M/S of the boys eating their food sitting on the steps of a wooden hut, behind them a red Indian smoking a peace pipe. Various shots of the boys eating. C/U of the red Indian smoking.

    Panning shot of the boys sitting around a camp fire watching the men dressed as red Indians perform a war dance, in the background is a wigwam. Various shots of the Indians dancing and banging drums - they are quite obviously white American airforce men 'blacked up'.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
