Interesting film clip

Just a brief clip, generally abut the heroines of the revolution, however with some interesting shots of field artillery pieces being used on flat bed trucks on trains. Enjoy.

Great title clip Jon.
We are lucky that this war has been filmed.
That gun on a train must be for picture purposes?
Thanks for showing it .

Fascinating stuff. Just a few sleepers to stop the gun rolling and nought else. Pancho Villa is known to have put artillery on flat wagons in improvised armoured trains. There's images of a dog kennel like roofed emplacement at the rear of one which must have acted as a shelter for the crew. I've also seen elsewhere a caboose with a row of rifle slits cut into the side panels...
