Galicia Ukraine Date:1916 Duration:1 min 28 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Russian General and his staff officers walk between formations of Russian troops lined on either side of a road during World War 1. As the General reaches the end of troop formation, he stops to greet the Regiment's Priest who stands near the troops. In the next scene, the Priest blesses the Regiment, as a military band plays. He then kneels and the entire regiment follows to pray, concluding by making the sign of the cross on their chests. The next scene shows the troops massed on one side of the San River, and a boat carrying about 20 soldiers makes its way across the rapidly flowing waters, by means of a cable stretched across the river. A larger boat is seen emptied of soldiers at a landing on the opposite side. The soldiers are walking along a path up a hill. The bigger boat is seen filled with soldiers and an artillery caisson, ready to cross the river. Some soldiers water their horses in the river. Women and children line up at an army outdoor kitchen set up near what appears to be a school building. They receive food from the Army cooks. (WWI; WW1)
