  • Description

    'Alpine Soldiers'. (Italian Army ?).

    MS soldiers in mountains; CU row of men hiking up steep slope through snow (to right); leaning on sticks; carrying backpacks; rifles; much other gear - looks like hard work.

    Next MS group of soldiers shovelling deep snow on bridge; trying to clear a road through mountain pass.

    Two others walk by; carrying skis on their shoulders, mountain face rises vertically a few yards in background. Contrast very high - everything looks black against the snow.
