  • Short Summary

    Nice footage of soldiers at barracks and marching off with their kit.

  • Description

    Jewish Battalion.

    Location of events unknown - somewhere in Britain?

    Pan across group of soldiers, some sitting, reclining, standing, all waving and cheering at camera. One holds up an American stars and stripes flag. Then they all get up and move off. Military officer inspects lines of troops. Soldiers in queue to go into building. They all look at the camera and one steps out of line to give a salute. Nice shot.

    Long lines of soldiers with kit bags and bedding (?) in a sausage-shaped carrier over their shoulders. Soldiers with kit march along past barrack buildings; two carry flags with Star of David on them; another carries Union Jack flag.
