  • Short Summary

    Soldiers demonstrate their new armoured cars on the streets of Dublin.

  • Description


    Intertitle: "ARMOURED CARS now replace mounted police during military raids".

    M/S of a soldier standing beside an armoured car - in one hand he holds a pistol, he smokes a cigarette with the other. Various shots of a crowd of people running out of the way as an armoured car speeds past. It is not clear whether the crowd has been assembled to demonstrate the effectiveness of the new vehicles, or whether they are actually genuine demonstrators - soldiers are seen pushing people out of the way of the car. M/S of a tram passing armed soldiers standing in a wide street. M/S of a horse and cart and the armoured car passing a crowd on the pavement. Panning shot of a wide Dublin street with a large statue in the distance and the crowd on the pavement, soldiers and an armoured car are nearby. M/S of the armoured car passing the crowd - the boys and men amongst the crowd step gingerly forward to get a better look at the car. More shots of the car passing the crowd. It would seem that this public armoured car display is a show of strength on the part of the R.I.C.

    Note: There is only a flash frame of intertitle.
