• Short Summary

    Staged footage of British soldiers going out on patrol in France.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Night Patrol 'Over There'."

    France.

    VS of the men of a small British army patrol preparing for their mission in as snow covered dug out, they put all their belongings into a bag then study a map and finally they all have a tot of rum.

    VS of the patrol moving out of the dug out through the allied wire and across the snow covered fields of No Man's Land. They all move slowly and bent low and are led by the officers carrying a pistol - no action and obviously staged by the troops for the cameraman, however some good CUs.
