  • Description

    ANZACs in desert.

    ANZACs in Egypt or Arabia, 4 soldiers stand in desert together; w/ Union Jack - either held by one or stuck in sand. They wear helmets; but one in big hat - looks Australian. Pan right to 2 soldiers facing right - 1 Australian hat; 1 helmet (saluting). A 3rd walks up to them; an unidentified flag some distance away.

    Appearing from sand and mist (this look probably comes from some problem w/ film or camera) at right are rows of Australian troops marching across desert. CU more troops marching. Ditto; w/ 2 soldiers standing in distance;then past a military band. Arabs help w/ saddling camels; Aussies hang out; on top of pile of bags; etc. Horse-drawn Red Cross wagons on a road Back to dream ghosts in desert. Repeat of camel part.
