Shot of group of Russian soldiers, man in foreground is struggling to pull matches out of his trouser pocket, he then lights a pipe in his mouth. Shot of the Russian troops filing past 3 men in coats (civilians) who are handing out packages from a big pile, a few officers stand watching. Some officers and the gift-givers stand and pose together for camera. Men giving out presents look quite wealthy and important.
