    French Army regiments travel by train.

  • Description

    Various French Army regiments travelling on trains.

    Opens with shots of Zouaves - soldiers are French but wear North African style uniforms with huge baggy trousers; short jackets; soft fez hats. Train stopped; but no railway station in sight - maybe a rest stop? Several soldiers hop down from carriages, soldiers and civilians stand or walk about.

    Shots of this and other trains passing by in various locations. One shot shows a train transporting equipment along with troops. Finally a group of men in civilian clothing; most very young looking teenagers; posing in front; on top and looking out of the windows of train passenger car; waving at camera - new recruits on their way to camp.

    Cataloguer's note: this is a copy of item entitled 'Troop Movements' in ON451 K on *PM2474*.
