This picture is extremely interesting and educational, for it shows us at close range many incidents connected with the life of a Spanish soldier. In the first picture we get an excellent view of the Plaza in Madrid, where in the foreground is a magnificent altar upon which Mass is being celebrated in the presence of the devout multitude. We see the recruits taking the oath before the altar, after which each one passes under the flag, which he kisses with deep veneration. Then we get an excellent view of the army on parade, marching down the main street and presenting a most inspiring picture. In the next picture we see the army in camp, where they are shown on dress parade and being put through their many war manoeuvers, which appear extremely realistic.

Released in the US as a split reel along with the drama A Child's Love (1909).
