  • Short Summary

    Tank manoeuvres in Surrey.

  • Description

    Item title reads: " "Do Tanks spoil Our Commons?". War Secretary sees tanks of all sizes take part in novel tests in effort to solve vexed question."

    Surrey

    M/S of a tank as it moves away into a wooded coppice. A truck carrying personnel goes by. A tank moves uphill past three people, who are seen, back to camera, sitting on a bench. A tank chugs along the road, and it passes by, with a door on the side flapping open.

    Note: the shot with the people on the bench looks quirky - either they or the tank are out of place.
