    Titles read: "DESERT CONVOY ATTACKED".

    Middle East.

    Various shots show a convoy of army trucks making their way across the desert with supplies for the front line. Pathe cameraman Terry Ashwood is seen checking his camera and filming from the roof of one of the trucks.

    The convoy is attacked by enemy shells that explode around the trucks and throw up clouds of sand. The convoy isn't hit.

    After the attack the Motor Transport Drivers stop and have a cup of tea. Terry Ashwood has one too! Commentator says "Nice work, Terry".
