    Nice footage of soldiers in training.

  • Description

    Recruits 'Gymnastics Display'.

    Physical fitness. Sports. 'Gymnastics display'. Men (soldiers undergoing physical training for World War One) run up to high bar; jump up and flip over. Then soldiers walk out onto field and do exercises; sort of like ballet; plies - knee bends -- etc. Then pan across field where guys are building human pyramids. Then they jump down. (Some of this is a duplicate of an earlier master).
