    Miss Margaret Wilson. Verdun, France.

    Short bit of film; showing US President Wilson's daughter; Miss Margaret Wilson; visiting captured German dugouts near Verdun; France. A French soldier walks toward camera; leading the group; along a path going past sort of primitive hillside structures; some dug into the hill and cave - like; with extra walls etc. built where needed. Following him are Miss Wilson; another woman; and more military guys some American; some French. They all go inside one of the dugouts. Then a shot of the group emerging; coming round a big rock; with a shovel leaning on it; Miss W. talking to the French officer. Another aspect of trench warfare style; where the combatants just build houses and move in for the duration.
