  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates unclear or unknown.

    Western Desert, Africa.

    Various shots, British light tanks advancing at speed over desert. Good shots of tank crews looking over maps. They are wearing their strange helmets. Shots of crew getting into tank.

    N.B. Paperwork suggests this material was filmed in December 1941. Some shots are scratched.

    Amendment April 2016: A visitor to the site has informed us that the tanks shown are M3 Stuarts which were supplied from the US via lend lease in 1941.
