Children witness soldiers stockpiling weapons for war in this edition of the Topical Budget newsreel.

Non-Fiction 1915 1 mins Silent


This Topical Budget newsreel item captures military personnel carrying armaments from A to B and the cheeky comradeship between soldiers. To a modern eye, it's alarming to see children weave past and inspect the various weapons, with little regard for health and safety. The changing reactions to the presence of the camera, from uptight to relaxed, make these scenes all the more relatable.
