    Naval Gun.

    France or Belgium?

    CU French soldiers preparing & loading a large gun in forest area. Doing something to shell; then rubbing part of gun that closes - probably something to do with explosives. They have to poke the shell in with a long pole. Then close this solid piece that fits into cylinder; 2 men cranking a handle.

    Weapons; technology; teamwork; bomb. World War One.
