Full title reads: "ABYSSINIA'S ARMY - Native warriors march past their Emperor."

Ethiopia (Abyssinia).

Pan to see tent and saluting base with audience watching the review of Ethiopian troops - Haile Selassie sitting in white suit. Barefoot troops in European army uniform parade past. Soldiers on horseback. Abyssinian officers on horseback. The drummer of the Imperial Guard riding past. Close up shot of tribal chief in native clothing. The review tent. Several shots of troops on horseback. Troops running past camera, this section is speeded up so people are moving very fast. The commentary continues but picture disappears at (01:02:15).
