    Titles read: "AUSTRALIAN LUMBERJACKS IN BRITAIN".

    Scotland.

    M/S of men of an Australian Forestry Unit marching along a forest path. Mr Stanley Bruce, High Commissioner for Australia, watches some of the lumberjacks in action, chopping down tall trees. Branches are removed from the fallen pine trees, then the trunks are hauled away by soldiers, cranes and tractors.

    In the sawmills we see Australian soldiers at work, converting the trunks into planks for the war effort. Mr Bruce chats to troops.

    One of the soldiers climbs up a tall pine tree and chops the top off with his axe. He stays on the tree as the top falls to the ground. His fellow soldiers watch and give him a round of applause.
