  • Description

    For Valour In The Field - decorating Russian soldiers with the Cross of St George - 1915.

    Location of events unknown - Eastern Front, Russia?

    In a snow-covered field; Russian soldiers receive St George's Cross. Officer pinning medals 'for valour in the field' on soldiers as they step up 3 men at once. Title frame. One officer on horseback (& it's so cold one can see the horse's breath!) looking across to soldiers standing in the snow. Then more of the decoration scene: men step up one at a time; the officer pins a medal on them; and they walk off. CU same.

    Hero; courage; battle; World War One; honours; decorations.
