Default Footage of White Mercenaries in the Congo

I watched the film "Africa Addio" (Released in the US as "Africa: Blood and Guts" which was a 1966 Documentary made by Italian Film makers (Who specialized in shocking footage) and it has some decent not well known/seen footage of white mercenaries in the Congo. I thought it would be of interest to us all here with the assortment of firearms used by them. Of particular note I saw several mercenaries using old Cetme Model B rifles, a FN 49, the Hotchkiss Universal Submachine gun, and a mercenary using a 1919 Machinegun "rambo" style.

You can actually find the whole documentary on youtube.
