    French Captive Balloon.

    Location of events unknown.

    Brief LS small tent w/ a few soldiers by it; round flat fabric on ground in front of tent. Next; French soldiers walking down a slope to left; holding strings attached to net around a huge round balloon which floats over the soldiers. Pan left on balloon as they pull it over in front of tent; then pull it down on the circle on ground. Soldiers seem to be tying balloon down. Pan right past balloon; soldiers watching. May be observation balloon which will have camera hanging from it.

    Note: this is not a barrage balloon or similar - looks like old-fashioned hot air balloon.
