Military Sunday in Newcastle
A marching band leads the parades with the Boer War still raging
Non-Fiction 1900 1 mins
On "Military Sunday" all troops garrisoned nearby paraded through town. Here, the Boer War is as an anxious backdrop. Closer inspection of the troops as they pass the camera reveals a motley group, perhaps preparing for deployment to South Africa. Presumably made with patriotic intentions, films of military events were a staple of early cinematograph shows, especially when news from the war was bad.
