    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unclear / unknown.

    Titles read: 'TAHITIAN FIGHTERS CAN HULA TOO!'

    Australia.

    Nice footage of a group of Tahitian men of the Fighting French Army singing a traditional Tahitian song and playing guitars / ukuleles. They are dressed in army uniforms.

    Then a small group of men in short sarong-type garments do a hula dance to the music. Brief shots of the men waggling their hips to the beat. Commentator notes the similarity to Hawaiian music and dancing.
