German General Paul von Hindenburg exits a building, during World War 1, rendering a sustained Hand salute as he passes guards and other soldiers. Kaiser Wilhelm II is seen standing with Prussian General Hermann von François,in front of a car. A young man, with driving goggles atop his cap, approaches the Emperor and seems to be conveying information about route of travel. The Kaiser's driver, in the car, nods in assent. The Kaiser thanks the young man, shakes hands and turns to enter the car. The Kaiser shifts a cane from his right hand to his crippled left hand, as he enters the car. General von Francois also shakes the young man's hand and turns to enter the car. Complete change of scene shows German army medical corps personnel in white hats, red cross armbands, and red crosses displayed on collars of their uniforms. They are marching, casually, past the camera. Their leader has a dog on a leash, and he salutes as they pass. Some of the corpsmen are equipped with bedrolls. Others carry various items, including some looking like personal luggage.
