    Titles read: "HUTS BY THE HUNDRED!"

    Near Catfield, Norfolk.

    Various rural countryside scenes on a farm; farmer using a tractor-drawn tiller on a field; pigs eating at a trough; farmer leads horses beside farm buildings. We then see a colony of workshops where hundreds of army huts are made in sections. Planks are sawn and planed, hammered together to make the sides of the huts.

    C/U of a toothless farmer laughing; a young man (referred to as a 'cow-keeper') smiles and hammers away. The hut sections are sprayed; glass is fitted into panes. The sections are packed onto trucks and driven off to army camps.
