    Queen Wilhelmina inspects soldiers.

  • Description

    Queen Wilhelmina sees army.

    Royalty; World War One; military. Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands (Holland) reviews troops and observes 'Up-to-date warfare'. Shot of Queen W. (in hat with some huge plume or bow) along with 6 officers; walking past line of soldiers. Then simulated battle action: soldiers in BG; across a field; throw grenades toward camera; then drop down on the ground. BOOM! several times over; in FG; lots of smoke. CU looking down row of soldiers wearing gas masks and holding rifles; crouching behind some low fence; and taking turns aiming /shooting & ducking. It does look like appropriate drill for World War One style warfare. Weapons; bomb; explosion
