  • Description

    French Army Manoeuvres.

    France?

    LS soldiers running across field to left. Soldiers walking up road; toward camera - wild looking - jaunty big berets; and all carrying tall canes - no idea why. This is very bizarre: a few British soldiers stand around a horse - the horse has some weird contraption attached around it's middle; w/ a round thing on the top - one of the guys starts winding a little dial on it - what military purpose might this invention have? (Could be some kind of machine gun? - SL.)

    Next; some French soldiers in the woods. 1 man looking through a sort of telescope on a tripod. More soldiers w/ guns come running and set up guns on tripods.
