    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    Ethiopia / Abyssinia.

    Various shots of Ethiopian troops with rifles. Gathering of people in town. Troops parade and show off. Haile Selassie applauds from a balcony. Parade of troops through town. Some march, some ride on horseback. Shot of troops marching showing their bare feet. Shot of tribal warrior in traditional costume with shield and spear. More shots of Selassie. More troops parade past. They look a little poorly disciplined. Shots of a man in uniform with lots of gold braid and medals. Chieftain parades in front of Selassie. Women in ambulance uniforms marching parade. Something of a melee in front of the building as they clamour to see their Emperor. Men kiss the steps leading up to Selassie.

    N.B. This film looks quite grainy and dupey.
