    Fireman Farmers. Part of PIGS MIGHT FLY! issue.

    London.

    Several shots of London firemen cleaning and polishing their engines and pumps. We then see a general view of a bombed area, where the enterprising firemen have built small pens for their pigs to live in. They tend the pigs and feed them with 'Soho Slush' - leftovers from local restaurants.

    The firemen also tend their marrows in their garden and look at their rabbits in hutches. A black cat sits on a table beside a large rabbit. A fireman hold up two small ducks for the camera.

    Brief shots of the men rushing into the fire trucks and driving off after an emergency call.
