Polish cavalry

Film | Accession Number: 2003.214 | RG Number: RG-60.4015 | Film ID: 3005

Footage of Polish Cavalry soldiers. Cannot confirm location where this was shot, but Bryan references shooting these scenes in 1937. Scene with six Polish soldiers sitting down, looking at papers or maps and discussing something. Cut to soldiers loading cannons that look more like WWI artillery rather than WWII. They have wooden wheels, etc. Repeat of the horses rushing down the hillside, driven by soldiers, rather random/staged looking battle scenes, one of the soldiers is on a field phone in one of the MCUs. Followed by shots of tanks and more soldiers, this time wearing combat helmets rather than dress uniform hats. 01:12:27:15 LS, soldiers on horseback appear seemingly out of nowhere on a vast expanse of plane, they ride out of frame, and then we see a CU of a tank moving across some brush, MS, soldiers on horseback crossing a river or stream. Cut to LS of a cavalry regiment coming down another sandy hillside.
