Italian and Greek Troops in Action: Italians Decorated by Prince of Wales 1917

7 mins United Kingdom

A bashful Edward, Prince of Wales (later Duke of Windsor) appears at the end of this enigmatic WWI footage. It was probably shot for inclusion in a newsreel, possibly in Greece, and features a range of rugged landscapes and wartime activities, including Italian Alpini soldiers in action in the mountainous terrain. There are also convivial scenes of men dancing on the hillside and roasting meat on an open fire, as well as glimpses of an unknown town - do you recognise any of the locations?
