  • Short Summary

    French Navy / Marines practise drill near Yser river in Belgium.

  • Description

    French Navy sailors - or Marines - stationed on the Yser river in Belgium near the North Sea.

    Pan on the men standing to attention during drill with flag. Practising bayonet charge up hill - seems an odd activity for sailors.

    Cataloguer's note: duplicate of item in ON 446 M on *PM2472*.
