Soldiers' prayer before the siege -- The sound of distant guns -- The call to arms -- Cavalry call -- Gunners rush to their posts -- Army corps approaching in the distance -- Gradually getting in line -- Infantry marching in perfect order -- Field guns -- Rain of shrapnel -- Machine guns -- Groans of the dying -- Battle rages with terrible fierceness.
Includes a verse from the poem: A ballad of Sarsfield / by Aubrey Thomas De Vere.
