Build up of German military capability and rearmament in the 1920's started with the soldiers training on fake tanks.

A group of German military officers with binoculars around their necks and some with Iron Cross badges. Dr Gesslar one shot. Model tanks as you can see their feet and bicycles wheels going around underneath !! A whole line of cardboard tanks process in front of the camera. The back view the men underneath more clearly. They push the tanks up a hill. Front views of the phoney tanks. A training film I presume !!
Lines of soldiers in spiked helmets on parade in Maine or Nuremburg , Germany. Probably World War One veterans
