Refugees in northern France and Flanders. Refugees, mostly women and children sit in the backs of trucks, looking at the camera. A group of men and women stand with bicycles and wagons in front of the awning of a bar. Horse-drawn wagons drive off. French soldiers march through a town. A few spectators watch their progress and wave at the men. People with bundles strapped to bicycles stand on the street. A group of them move off down the street, watched by other people in the street. A nice shot of people wheeling their bundle-laden bikes past several destroyed buildings. Refugees on an open road and walking through a town. An old man uses his umbrella as a cane as he walks slowly down the road. A group travels down a road, several of the people push baby carriages. A man who may be a German soldier follows up the rear. Four people, with their faces almost covered by blankets, sit in the back of an open truck. More shots of refugees in the backs of trucks.
