  • Short Summary

    Australians in Palestine desert - this is a second part of the story, first part is in previous item.

  • Description

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

    Beginning of this story is mistakenly added to the previous story on this tape UN 216 C - EDEN IN EGYPT. To clarify confusion I will copy a part of the previous file with description belonging to this story. Relevant footage starts at a following time code 01:29:02. This means that the story AUSTRALIANS IN PALESTINE has following time codes 01:29:02 - 01:38:11.


    From the previous record:
    Various shots of Australian troops leaving the train in Egypt. They take a tea, organise a convoy and head for camp near Gaza. Troops cheer as a black car, presumably with Eden in, drives past. Several shots of local people - presumably in Palestine. Elderly men seated against the wall looking on. A great shot of women carrying huge clay pots on their heads. Several shots of an Egyptian village.

    Anthony Eden talking to several officers in a camp. Australian soldiers buying fruit from Arabic men. Several shots of the local people. Anthony Eden gets out of car to inspect Australian troops at base camp in Palestine. Various shots of Eden inspecting troops.

    Several shots of Australian convoy arriving to desert, local people looking on. Several shots of the troops' camp - large white tents lined up in a desert.

    This record:
    Several shots of Australians erecting tents. Various shots of the Australian troops doing rifle drill. Guard on duty. A man blows a bugle. Australian flag flying at mast head.
