    Interned Marines doing cooking and laundry at camp and marching through city street.

  • Description

    Interned (German?) Marines in Holland / Netherlands.

    World War One. MS several men doing kitchen food preparation work: grating cabbage - w/ pile of cabbages in FG! Men coming out of a building carrying steaming pots & pans. Walking toward camera; 2 men carrying a pot between them; while others crowd around; the guys are cracking up; sticking spoons into pot etc. Men pile up clothing; wash it in buckets. Laundry.

    Military review in a large square; soldiers march past large building like palace. Looks like multinational parade. Some of the flags look Italian (?). Brief shot from another story - possibly line of volunteers - crowded line on pavement (in London?). Back to previous scene in square. CU group of men in shirtsleeves; vests; cloth caps sit around a blanket eating - like a picnic. This may finally have something to do w. the original story - could be the interned marines marching down city street.
