Some idle soul has done the world a favour by amalgamating wartime newsreel clips from the British Pathé and Japanese NHK archives.
As the running time is quite substantial, what follows is a breakdown of the bits of most interest to wargamers (not that the rest isn’t worth watching, particularly for those wishing to see a leafy Bangkok unsullied by today’s congestion):
00:04 Primary school members of the Yuwachon youth movement participating in irredentist marches.
0:54 Arrival of a Laffly S15R bearing Japanese mediators.
00:59 French troops, including one cheeky-looking chap in a non-regulation beret.
01:42 Thai reservists presenting arms to the Franco-Thai-Japanese armistice commission.
