  • Description

    Soldier arrive at army camp. Location of events unknown.

    World War One. Soldiers arrive at British Army Camp; are assigned to barracks. Shot of military band (fife & drums anyway) marching down road; behind them troops carrying duffel bags. They round a corner; going past some small buildings at army camp. They separate; some of them going off to left; while an officer stands looking at some papers. Pan to the men setting down their bags; and moving into haphazard lines; to be told where to go. One of them picks up bag; walks off. Row on other side away from camera starts to file off. Definitely looks like new recruits.
