British engineers lay railroad tracks in Palestine. Troops Bivouacked in palm grove.
Palestine Date:1917 Duration:1 min 28 sec Sound:NO SOUND
British military engineers (they appear to be Australian and or New Zealand, ANZAC, troops) constructing a railroad line in Palestine during World War I. Some drive spikes to secure the new rails, as others position them with long steel poles. Teams of local laborers carry materials forward from the track-laying supply train that moves forward as track is installed. Another scene shows a holt tractor pulling British artillery and men across the sand. Final scene is of British troops bivouacked in a grove of palm trees. The Suez Canal is visible in far background. (World War I; World War 1; WWI; WW1)
