    Title reads: "Germany"

    Berlin Cavalry School, Germany.

    Cavalry men in the making in Germany. Various shots of new recruits dressed in long johns. They are trying on their new uniforms. The cadets are deliberately given wrong sized trousers as a joke - they look very silly wearing uniforms that are too small or too big.

    Various shots of cadets in training. We seem them riding their horses around an enclosure. They are not very good - some have trouble getting on, others slip off saddle or fall off completely. Bizarrely most of them are still dressed in just their long johns or half a uniform.

    Cataloguers note: dispels myth that German soldiers are cold and efficient. Unusually light-hearted look at German army!
