Descrizione:Opening with a pan over a group of Australian soldiers of various divisions wearing their bush hats and watching the exercise. This is followed by the exercise itself. Australian troops in full battle equipment run past a cloud of earth thrown up by an explosion. Some go over a bayonet assault course wearing their gasmasks. Two, with bush hats, fire rifle grenades from a kneeling position. The final scene is platoon training. In a very realistic exercise the platoon, led by its officer, practises bombing up the traverses in a training trench, a grenade being thrown and the men dashing forward to arrive just after the explosion. Finally a 3-inch mortar is fired from a trench.
A demonstration by Australian Infantry of tactics used in trench fighting on the Western Front, early 1918 (?).
