Australian newsreel item.
Title reads: "Dutch West Indians to Fight Japs".
Various shots crowd cheering soldiers on deck of troop ship - they are from the Dutch West Indies (Dutch Guiana?) and will join the Allied Forces fight. We see them playing guitars and waving traditional sabres. Amongst the soldiers are three from Holland - they escaped after the Germans invaded their country and fled to the West Indies.
