  • Description

    Titles read: "CANNED SUNSHINE".

    Natal, South Africa.

    M/S of sacks of oranges being unloaded from a train in Natal by African men, as commentator tells us the fruit is going to be made into juice for South African troops. Various shots of the oranges going through machinery to be squeezed. The juice is put into vats to be concentrated then poured into tin cans - the first time orange juice has been put into tins, we are informed!

    Commentator notes "and to think that the wops have to put up with tinned macaroni". Brief shot of Australian soldiers drinking their juice.
