  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - location and dates unclear or unknown.

    VS of members of the WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) being trained in the operation of barrage balloons. We see them in a classroom looking over the motorised pulley. We see them outside with a balloon, being shown how to tether it, roll it up, how to operate the gas tanks. We see the young women working with ropes and looking at a model balloon. Shots of them in hanger and outside letting balloons go up into the air. Nice CU of the girls at the end posing for the camera.
