  • Short Summary

    Schoolboy fire fighting team in Germany.

  • Description

    "These are boys of the new Brigade - a schoolboys' team in Germany."

    Various shots of young boys riding bicycles and pushing fire fighting equipment through a German town. L/S of building with a fire ladder propped up against the wall. Boys stand around at the bottom of the ladder. Low angle shot of men at the top of the ladder and hoses fighting a fire (an imaginary fire?).

    "The pump may only be manual, but the boys work it with great gusto - " Various shots of the boys working the pump. They look like they are enjoying themselves. L/S of the building with the boys gathered around at the base of it. This presumably an exercise rather than a real fire.
