• Short Summary

    Good shots of ATS women driving trucks and motorbikes at Motor Transport Training Centre.

  • Description

    ATS Drivers. Part of the UP AND OVER issue.

    Location of events unknown - somewhere in Britain.

    Nice M/S of an ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service) woman buttoning her tunic. At a Motor Transport Training Centre we see several shots of ATS drivers being taught how to service their trucks. Good shots of them lying on the ground under their lorries and making adjustment.

    The women call at the filling station before starting off in their trucks for their driving tests. Women look at a map on the bonnet of their truck. Another woman drives about on a motorcycle. Good shots of ATS girls in helmets riding their motorcycles around the grounds of a country mansion.

    When off duty, we see nice shots of the women strolling about the grounds in their uniform shirts, skirts and caps.

    "Good shots of them lying on the ground under their lorries" - the lorry is a Fordson WOT3.
