    Good footage of German troops marching through Cologne in the demilitarised zone and crowds cheering them on.

    Item title reads - Germany repudiates two treaties - armed forces enter the demilitarised zone.

    Cologne.

    L/S as the German troops march through the streets of Cologne, children run in front of them. C/U of the soldiers' faces as they march past. M/S of a field kitchen. Various good shots as they march or ride through the streets bringing their equipment with them. Includes shots of Cologne Cathedral. M/S of Nazi officers watching approvingly. People wave and cheer, a man leads the soldiers banging a drum. Various shots of the troops goose-stepping and bands playing. Aerial shots of the Rhine river and Cologne.

    Note: Very good footage of the German troops. Although Pathe's original records stated that this film featured Saarbrucken, we have been reliably informed that the events take place in Cologne.
