• Short Summary

    Hermann Goering's Mercedes is inspected by owner Raymond Way.

  • Description

    Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.

    Various shots of the Mercedes car that once belonged to Hermann Goering being driven along a country road. It goes into the drive of 'New Lodge' and parks beside a row of cars there (Bentley, Rolls and others). Owner Raymond Way comes out of the house and comes over to the car.

    Commentator tells us that the car has been exhibited up and down the country to raise money for the dependants of soldiers, sailors and airmen (the SSAFA - Soldiers' Sailors' and Airmen's Families Association).

    Way and the driver inspect the car, looking under the bonnet, examining the bullet-spattered windscreen and windows, opening a door to show the armour plating on the bottom of the car and looking in the spacious boot. C/Us showing features of the car. Pan across the row of cars, including Winston Churchill's Daimler and the Duke of Windsor's Buick.
