  • Short Summary

    Hirohito reviews Japanese army. Use the version at 709.02 which is better and has sound.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Oyama, Japan. Emperor Hirohito reviews Nippon's highly trained army at termination of annual manoeuvres."

    Oyama, Japan.

    Shots of Emperor Hirohito riding a white horse.

    Shots of Japanese troops on manoeuvres. Small tanks, artillery, etc. Shots of officers watching the scene through binoculars.

    Crowds watching. Soldiers do drill display. They march past the Emperor. Horse drawn field guns follow in the parade and then we see cavalry troops.

    N.B. Poor mute print of story. A better version with sound is at 709.02 - *PM0709*.
