    March of Time -- outtakes -- World War I memorial at Vimy; French refugees, Belgium

    Overview

    Description
    Several Frenchmen, some of whom wear the uniforms of high-ranking officers and some of whom are in civilian dress, visiting the Canadian World War I memorial at Vimy, France. They survey a vast fortification system dug into the earth and lined with sandbags. The camera focuses on a sign reading "Canadian Front Line, 1917." The scene switches to show soldiers (French?) marching across a town square, then back to the men inspecting the fortification. The men approach a huge structure that serves as the memorial.

    01:21:44 Various views of ruins of buildings in the Flanders region of Belgium. Children and adults sort through debris, including a pile of household goods piled on a sidewalk. Refugees travel down a road while a vehicle smolders in the foreground. Good wide shots of people on a street of burning and smoldering buildings. Refugees wheeling bicycles and riding in a horse-drawn wagon walk through the streets. The camera pans along sidewalks and streets, picking out clothes and other possessions, including a dressmaker's dummy and a store mannequin. More shots of buildings burning. Soldiers and/or fireman remove furniture from one store.

    01:28:02 Soldiers of the British Expeditionary Force boarding ships at Boulogne. Wounded men are unloaded from ambulances and carried aboard on stretchers. As each man boards, an identification tag is removed from a button on his jacket. At one point two women are visible, wearing helmets.
