    Unissued / Unused material.

    Balloon bomb. Britain.

    M/S parachute hanging up. M/S lorry approaching and driving past. British soldiers jump out with sign which reads - 'Unexploded bomb keep away'. M/S as they approach the bomb. C/U of the sign. M/S man examining the bomb under the parachute. C/U as he picks it up. M/S winches. C/U map.

    Amendment May 2015: A visitor to the site has informed us that the location of the events shown is actually America. The balloon in the film very closely resembles Japanese balloons that were launched from 1944 to 1945 in the direction of the USA. Furthermore the map shown is of America.
