  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    Titles read: "IN ABYSSINIA - Scenes in ADDIS ABABA and on the Italian Front."

    Abyssinia (Ethiopia).

    At an airfield we see various shots of a plane arriving. A young African boy - Crown Prince of Abyssinia? - in a suit and pith helmet gets out and poses outside with another young man.

    Troops runs along in countryside area. Men in robes walk along with rifles. Troops are inspected by Italian invading forces (?).

    In a harbour we see ships full of cargo being unloaded - Italian army equipment.

    Haile Selassie and other members of the Abyssinia stand on the steps of a building. Haile Selassie travels along in a coach past crowds of people.

    Note: no paperwork or soundtrack for this item making it quite difficult to assertain what is going on.
