Canadian Journalists Visit France 3

The Film

Year
1918

Running Time
02 min 45 s

Patchy film of leading Canadian journalists visiting the Canadian Training Division at Bramshot and Witley, near Aldershot, July 1918.

The divisional commander, Brigadier- General F S Meighan, shows the journalists around the training area. The men are engaged in various kinds of training: a trench system, a boxing match, a battalion march past, making wire entanglements, Lewis machinegun exercises and bayonet practice. Very broken film, extremely hard to follow.
