  • Description

    The King calls for volunteers.

    World War One. Home front. King Calls for Volunteers from men ineligible for military service. Join your local battalion of the V.T.C. and help to defend your country. Shot of a bunch of men digging. Most wear uniforms so they must be veterans; and some of the guys are elderly. Next pan across men building fences; one man is pounding a post in; swinging the big mallet around in a circle. Stop on group of men unrolling barbed wire; winding it round fence posts.
