I always liked the way this segment ended, with the black and white footage fading out to the current landscape.

In the event that stops working, "Lockett" should work in the search box.
Thanks so much for finding that! I had searched in vain this week for one of his shows about an old California military post.

Nearby Tecate, Mexico had a popular Italian restaurant whose owner - it was said - had escaped across the border from Camp Lockett.
I grabbed a couple of screen shots from the video:

here's a great bit of film showing the training and rideing at Camp Lockett, some of the comments from those filming and nearby can be heard....... quite funny!
Just change the uniforms and it could have been filmed in 1880!
