• Short Summary

    Goering visits Luftwaffe pilots in Italy, accompanied by derogatory commentary.

  • Description

    Titles read: "GOERING IN ITALY".

    Italy.

    Various shots show Field Marshal Hermann Goering on an inspection of Nazi Luftwaffe pilots in a barren area of Italy. He fingers the medals of one of the pilots - commentator jokes that because Mrs Goering has sent all his medals to the cleaners "old skin and bone has a look round to see what he can pick up cheap".

    Goering chats to the troops while he is "standing on a soapbox filled with reinforced concrete". C/Us of some of the soldiers in the crowd. Goering walks over to an anti-aircraft gun site and talks with German officers.

    Note: commentary makes much of the fact that Goering is quite a large man!
