French volunteers lined up in the square in front of a palace. A French flag is raised as a bugle plays. French officers and German officers stand together. A French officer gives a speech over shots of French and German soldiers standing at attention. Shot of spectators watching the ceremony. The German and French soldiers (some on horseback) march out of the palace square and down the Ponte Alexander to the Champs Elysses to the tomb of the unknown soldier and lay a wreath. The soldiers and the crowd (including a group of girls in some kind of youth group uniform) give a Hitler salute.
