Vintage Video - Kaiser Wilhelm II's Military Gathering, 1913
Since ascending the German throne Kaiser Wilhelm II had deliberately adopted a more militaristic pose than his predecessor, determined to achieve a "place in the sun" for Germany along with Europe's other great powers.
The film footage available here (see below) features the Kaiser featuring foremost at a military gathering in 1913, a short period before war began in Europe.
Use the player above to view footage of the Kaiser.
A "chit" was British slang for a piece of paper.
