On the March

Soldiers troop down a leafy Surrey lane in this intriguing wartime newsreel item.

Non-Fiction 1915 1 mins Silent

Overview

This intriguing Topical Budget newsreel item is comprised of static shots - possibly in the wrong order - of soldiers marching down a leafy lane in Surrey. The introductory title boasts of the 'inspiring' sight but there are no crowds assembled to cheer the boys on. We suspect that they're marching off to war, unaware of the horrors ahead.
