• Short Summary

    British troops enter Belgium in 1940.

  • Description

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

    France / Belgium.

    Several shots of heavily bombed small city, or village. Shots of British troops crossing French / Belgian boarder entering a Belgian city. People line up the street. Some wave to the troops, most just look on. Armoured cars, tanks, motorbikes and lorries pass through the streets in a long line. Various shots of the British convoy driving through Belgian town.

    (Neg.)

    Note: Soundtrack from a totally different story starts around middle of this story and carries on until the end. This item is mute negative - the track belongs to another story. It is American narration and in itself does not make much sense.
