  • Description

    Full title reads: "Chertsey. Tanks Swim Now! Vickers Armstrong startles world with marvellous new amphibious war machine."

    Chertsey, Greater London.

    Man begins to explain about a new design of tank for crossing rivers - pan to show small tank. A driver is looking out of the turret.

    Shots of the small tank going through its paces on a testing track, driving over various obstacles and across rough ground.

    The tank is driven down a river bank and starts to make its way across the water. It looks dangerous but makes it across the river and comes out on the other side.
