Summary: A German Army exercise in bridging a river, possibly the Rhine, before the First World War.
Description: Scenes of a riverside town, including its castle. The river itself has steep banks, and is wide and fast-flowing. The German Engineers, in fatigue dress, row the pontoon boats with their wooden cross-beams out into the river, and link them together with ropes to form one continuous bridge. The bridging timbers are laid across the pontoons and the bridge (with a supporting side-rail) completed. Horse transport moves across the bridge. The Engineers then start to dismantle the bridge and row the pontoons back to the shore.
