  • Description

    World War One, France.

    French volunteers board train. Young men on railway station platform crowd toward door of train. Good shot of the train starting to roll past, the new recruits hang out of the windows, waving their caps etc. A young man hangs onto the moving train as he shakes hands with his friend. A few coaches back, a young woman runs alongside moving train, her hand reaches out to man on train. Much excitement & enthusiasm among the new recruits.
