Today, Fritz Arno Wagner (1894 - 1958) is best remembered as a pioneering cinematographer from the earliest days of the German film industry, however before he could gain the experiences necessary to become the director of photography for such films as "Nosferatu", and "Westfront" he had to first fulfill his obligations to the Kaiser.

This article is an account of his brief stint in Germany's elite Hussar cavalry (ie. lancers) that he gave to the editor's of LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED WEEKLY NEWSPAPER. Although the article only covers his training period, it does give the reader a sense of what life was like for an enlisted man serving in one of the highly prized regiments in the Imperial German Army. It is believed that this magazine article was written during his days with Pathe News in New York.
