    Unused / unissued material - dates and locations may be unclear / unknown.

    Hamburg, Germany.

    Shots of men and women lined up in a courtyard or parade ground at a police training school. Some men are in military-style police uniforms and we see them marching about.

    Several shots of the men jumping over an exercise box as a British officer looks on. The men do jumping exercises and push ups while the women throw large balls to each other.

    In an office a man in British army uniform sits at a desk with a policewoman, German high-ranking policeman and man in plain clothes. The British man could be Inspector McDermott, supervisor of Hamburg Police.

    Policemen and women sit at desks in a classroom and are briefed for black market raid by a man at a blackboard. He tests individual people on the details and moves cars about on the board.

    Trucks of police are parked in a city street and police get out. They walk along the street and go into a building - Hotel Stadt Hamburg. A woman is arrested and made to get on a truck. Several arrested men and women get on the same truck. Policemen carry what are presumably black market goods from the hotel and put them on trucks.

    Shots of the policemen and women in self-defence training. Two women play table-tennis.

    Several shots of a traffic policeman on duty, wearing white coat and mittens (looks a bit like someone from Camblewick Green).
