This short newsreel (location unknown, 1914-1918) shows two Irish girls pinning sprigs of shamrock on the caps and coats of soldiers. There are Irish soldiers from various regiments including Connaught Rangers, Royal Artillery to Fusiliers.

Some of the men are wearing bandages and appear to be wounded while others casually stand by having a cigarette.
