  • Short Summary

    Unidentified First World War General(s) in United States and France.

  • Description

    Wartime General.

    Location of events unknown - looks like United States of America and France.

    Brief shot of a General (?) standing on a high platform with a fashionably-dressed lady who swings a bottle to launch something (?) (looks like United States).

    Cut to shot of French General - could be Marshal Foch - talking to soldiers outside a building or barracks. He hands something to a man.

    Cut back to the 'launch' scene where we see the other General walking past a line of guards with the lady. Other officials follow. Brief shot of the General and woman back on the platform.

    A bit chopped about - I cannot identify either General (they could possibly be the same man, after a fair amount of weight gain!). Any information gratefully received.
