  • Short Summary

    A reconstruction of Wellington's troops storming a fortress forms part of the entertainment at Aldershot's Military Tattoo.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Days of Wellington revived - Storming of Badajos by thousands of "Soldier Actors"... spectacular feature of this year's Tatoo [sic]."

    Aldershot, Hampshire.

    Various shots show the re-enactment of the Duke of Wellington's troops storming a fortress, as part of a Military Tattoo. Some of the casualties are not very convincing, looking round to see what is happening and putting on their hats when they are supposed to be injured or dead! Brief M/S of the soldiers climbing up ladders pushed against the fortress wall.
