Notes
Content: Title from folder.
Content: Printed on border: "290 ; The great war" "Many of the Russian regiments have vocal and instrumental orchestras that accompany the troops to battle in place of the regimental bands. The singers are specially trained, and with cymbals, bells, and other hand instruments accompany the martial and national songs they sing while marching along. The effect of this is most inspiring, and raises the ardour of the soldiers to a pitch that the music of an ordinary regimental band could not do." Includes additional text.
