French Resident-General and Commander-in-Chief, Charles Nogues greeted in Fez, Morocco
Fez Morocco Date:1936 Duration:58 sec Sound:Yes
Newly appointed French Resident General and Commander in Chief, Charles Nogues emerges from a building leading an entourage. He is in full dress uniform. A band plays La Marseillaise as General Nogues and a mounted honor guard salutes. Colonial troops are drawn up in formation. Moroccan horsemen enter a compound, where infantry stand in formation. General Nogues and party walk along path and meet and greet Moroccan tribal leaders. French officers on horseback lead a contingent of Moroccan mounted troops. An extraordinarily large crowd of Moroccans fills a public square. General Nogues, now in ordinary military uniform, ceremonially reaches, with right hand, into a bowl of food offered by a Moroccan official. Others of his party do likewise. He then reaches down to a large plate on a low table near the ground and takes a morsel, with his right hand, and eats it.
