  • Description

    Colonial troops training in camp. Location of events unknown.

    World War One. 'Colonial Troops in Camp' - but not wearing uniforms here; just regular comfortable clothing. Man in FG; looking toward camera and talking; others in BG jumping rope (just for sec; then they stop). Then a group of about 7 guys gathered; each holding a rifle with bayonet attached; upside down; with points upward. One man seems to be the instructor explaining to the others; but they are all laughing and joking and acting silly for camera -- feeling the blade etc. and one guy in front holds his up bayonet vertically in front of his face and assumes a deranged look on his face. Weapons.
