    Italy.

    Various shots of the Allied troops in Italy - artillery, armoured cars and tanks advancing through countryside. Strange shot of little Italian girl holding umbrella over head of a soldier on motorcycle while he is looking at engine.

    Italian civilians gathered around British officer and another man who is a translator. Officer reading a document, man translating. Some people in the crowd applaud, some jeer, majority looking on. Several men guarded by British soldiers - possibly Fascists being imprisoned. Several shots of people doing their daily work. Various shots of soldiers washing clothes, fixing shoes, etc. They are helped by civilians.

    Various shots of the troops marching through unknown Italian town. Crowd looking on. Dignitaries are seen on dais. Group of nuns watching the ceremony from a balcony. King Victor Emanuel is seen inspecting troops. A cardinal joins him - unclear where and when. King presents a man with medal. King watching march past.
