  • Description

    Unissued / unused footage - locations and dates may be unclear / unknown.

    Final scenes before the Battle of Mareth on 27 March 1943, in which the British succeeded in taking the Tunisian town from the Germans.

    Various shots of British Sherman tanks moving up to the front line in Tunisia along sandy desert roads. British Matilda tanks move up to the front line through typical rocky desert. Sherman tanks moving up through typically rocky country.

    Nice shots of smiling soldiers sitting on top of the tanks as they go by - good to illustrate the cheerful British character about to do something brave!

    According to paperwork on file, these are Censor Cuts from the War Office.
