PART II. TRAINING IN THE VARIOUS BRANCHES OF THE SERVICE

Cavalry Exercices

The manner in which recruits are able to perform various evolutions "bare-back," shows the efficiency of their training. Great agility and nerve are required for the feats depicted.

A Musical Ride performed by the 2nd Life Guards is a wonderful sight. The horses keep time to the music, and seem to enter into the spirit of the display. This display demonstrates the highest perfection of "drill and dressing."

The effect of a charge of Lancers, so demoralising to an enemy, can be realised from these pictures.

THE TRAINING OF CAVALRY AT CANTERBURY

Sword Exercise and Lance Drill

HERE the recruits have advanced a stage further in their training, and are being instructed in the use of their weapons, the mode of pursuing an enemy being shown.

Bare-back Riding and Charge of Lancers

IN the two scenes, which are joined together in this film, the men who took part in the military tournament last year are seen practising their wonderful feats in hare-back horseman-
ship. The picture concludes with a grand charge of Lancers directly towards the camera. At its conclusion, the men are seen full size on lhe film.

Musical Ride by the 2nd Life Guards

The perfection of drill and training is seen in this beautiful performance. A body of life-guards, with their plumes waving in their helmets, ride out from each side of a large courtyard and meet in the centre, where they form up into the shape of a star. The living star at once begins to revolve on its centre, the horses keeping their time and places with marvellous accuracy.
