    I strongly believe that at least the 1st part of this film has been inverted left to right. You have a left handed flute player and left handed Trombone players. All of the horsemen have their scabbards on their right hand side ie they will draw them with their left hand! Finally soldiers are wearing their medals on their right hand side. Surely theu are not wearing them for someone else!!

    The previous post is correct; one could add that the officers on foot are carrying their sheathed swords in their right hands instead of their left! The film is obviously back to front. It is time British Pathe fixed it or they will look rather foolish.

    When I wrote my previous comment I had not watched the whole of the clip. It switches during the film from laterally inverted to correct and back again a few times. It is an interesting piece of history from a very old film. It looks as though the original film broke into pieces and was then spliced together, with some of the sections back to front.
