Must See Footage online...


Recommended Posts

The first film is interesting as it appears to have focused on one unit/area. The film appears to have been made in 1915 since there are no steel helmets, my French uniform knowledge is not the best, and as it is in black and white I cannot tell if the uniforms are horizon blue or not, but i assume since I did not see any Adrian helmets I can assume it is prior to 1916.

Where is the source of this film?

It would seem to me that as film making during the period was not what it is today that the videographer would have shot these scenes in close proximity, and if the source can be found then perhaps a unit number may be identified from the parading poilus at ~10:30-45. It would be interesting to research the medal recipient.
