In this 1917 newsreel, troops from the Engineers’ Depot rehearse a raid on enemy trenches and are instructed by their commanding officers over the telephone.

As this newsreel is silent the story is introduced by the use of a title card but no further facts are provided using intertitles.

The camera captures the action by panning from left to right and back again. Although edits are made the camera angle remains the same throughout the newsreel.
