Scots soldiers are drilled in trench warfare techniques in leafy English countryside.

Non-Fiction 1914 1 mins Silent


At the outbreak of WWI the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry regiment began an intensive year-long training period to prepare them for the Front. This arresting newsreel footage shows the 'Fifes', mounted and armed with machine guns, performing tactical exercises in the otherwise peaceful countryside - possibly around Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire, where they spent two months training in the autumn of 1914.
