    Bretons in Britain. Part of PIGS MIGHT FLY! issue.

    Somewhere in southern England.

    Various shots of Breton fishermen tending their boats in a harbour. Commentator says the Bretons fled occupied France and are now working here. Men and young boys paint and clean boats, mend nets, scrub boards and prepare for a fishing trip.

    Several shots of the fishermen at sea, throwing nets overboard and pulling in catches of flapping fish. Men sit gutting fish on the deck. Commentator says the Bretons retain their independence because "their catch, which adds to the food supply, will soon be sold in the marketplace ashore".
