    I suggest that this clip is re-classified. The current description states 'Motor Ambulances From Rumania - Poincaris - 1916. France (?).'

    However the stills 0.03/0.04 clearly shows a British policeman, and the still 0.16 shows '...ted by the British Sportman's Ambulance Fund' I assume that the '..ted' is Donated or Gifted. I cannot understand how this can be classified as 'Motor Ambulances From Rumania'. Unless it was to mislead the enemy!
