  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - date and locations unclear or unknown.

    Various shots of an American war reporter sitting at his typewriter, typing and smoking a cigarette. The typewriter is on the bonnet of a jeep. He looks up at the camera, smiles and gives us a typical GI wave!

    Another soldier sits typing under a tree. He keeps adjusting his helmet so it sits at a natty angle.

    An older US war correspondent makes notes in a little notebook.

    A third soldier, with a beard, uses a typewriter that is balanced on his knees. A clean shaven soldier does same.

    Yet another soldier types while sitting in a jeep. He stares at the camera then breaks into a smile.

    A bespectacled soldier talks into a microphone. He carries bulky sound equipment on his back like a ruck sack. Another correspondent does same. GI with moustache takes photographs with his camera.

    Note: all the above sequences look rather staged.
