  • Short Summary

    Soldiers ride on cart pulled by tractor / gun carrier.

  • Description

    Horseless Artillery.

    Location of events unknown.

    Shot of a chain of 2-wheeled artillery carriages hooked together w/ British soldiers riding on each; & signs 'Wanted Fighting Men'. The vehicle in front; another 2 wheeled thing with nobody on it & no seat for them to be on; is supposed to be filling in for the horses: it has reins stretching back to the 1st man.

    In first shot the whole thing rolls down hill to right. But then there's a shot of it driving uphill toward camera; so obviously it is some sort of working tractor. MS soldier holding the reins pulls on 1 side; then other; causing the fake horse to turn left or right.

    (Looks like motorised gun carrier - SL).

    Technology. Inventions; military vehicles. Horseless Artillery.
