The men of the 2nd Battalion get ready to fight. They set up barbed wire, shoot at targets using Lee-Enfield .303 rifles with bayonets and familiarize themselves with the operation of the Lewis machine gun.

A platoon of the 10th Battalion also learns to handle the Lee-Enfield and the Lewis gun. The new recruits practise putting on their gas masks and do various physical exercises. A sports competition with many different events is held at the training camp.
