A small group of other soldiers, perhaps higher ranking, shake hands and give the Nazi salute. They inspect the lines of Nazi RAD, who stand at attention with their shovels. They march down a path through fields. Shots of them in formation with their shovels in a field, then running into formation. Marching. More maneuvering and inspections. They do exercises in unison in shorts. They perform gymnastics on wooden logs and jump rope. They set up tents. They take down the tents. They perform drills with weapons.
