The main activities of the 22nd battalion behind the lines. First we see the battalion marching. Then the soldiers stop to eat, while commissioned and non-commissioned officers pose for the camera. The battalion regroups for an outdoor service. Later a marching company stops to find out which route to take. A young Frenchwoman answers their questions. Finally, the battalion commander, Lt-Col Tremblay, addresses his men.
