  • Description

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

    Berlin, Germany (probably 1945).

    Shots of Russian soldiers looking at a camera and other goods - selling on black market?

    Crowded streets. British soldiers seem to be examining papers and looking at goods with civilians. People start running through streets. German police join hands to barricade the area. Papers are checked. General confusion as people wander about and attempt to get past police. People are put on trucks and driven off. Raid on black marketeers?

    Policeman searches bushes nearby. More checking of papers and goods.
