  • Description

    No titles. Soldiers.

    Location of events unknown.

    M/S of anti-aircraft emplacement unattended. M/S of a soldier in a collarless shirt sitting beside some camouflage netting and pretending to sew a small mat. Other men are seen working on some mesh panels, stretching threads over a wooden frame and around pegs, then weaving other threads in and out to make mats.

    Soldiers have food and drink, standing up near the anti-aircraft gun. A small black dog sits on the wall and one of the soldiers feeds it some food. Other men man the gun. The dog wanders about the wall.

    Several shots of soldiers in tin hats, digging in a garden or allotment and picking vegetables.

    Back at the anti-aircraft gun we see men in the emplacement, putting on their helmets and milling about.
