    France.

    Several shots of the ruins of the old town in France. Tall column with a statue on top is seen - it is possible that the crowds gathered for the unveiling of the memorial - possibly the Great War memorial. Several shots of the procession of war veterans, officers and civilians. President of the Republic Albert Lebrun walking in procession. Several shots of the crowds, lined up solders, dignitaries, flag bearers, crowds, assembled in front of a high dais. Several men address the gathering from the dais. Several shots of the troops march past. Pan along the column, from the base to the top with a statue on it.
