    This item finishes at (01:23:23) when the title for the new item starts.

    Title reads: "EN ROUTE FOR THE SAAR".

    Officer inspecting the troops. Various shots of the troops march past. Benito Mussolini delivering a speech at an open gathering. Lines of officers behind him. Troops on troopship waving as ship leaves a harbour. Line of solders with arms at ready. Several shots of the French troops and officers, looking quite relaxed, Troops in Calais marching on the street.

    Note: Both, paperwork and voiceover for this item are missing. This is obviously an item about the international troops stationed in Saar, but it is difficult to say more.
