Good shots of London firemen demonstrating their skills with ladders and hoses.
Full title reads: "London's Smartest - and that's saying something! Dockhead wins motor escape championship - doing all you see in 1 min. 18 secs!"
Men of the London Fire Brigade (LFB) perform in their annual competition. A fire engine arrives in a yard. The ladder is dropped from the back and firemen climb up the side of a fire tower.
Other fire officers attach a hose to a hydrant and use the water to knock over a target. They then rush across and climb up the ladder. Firemen climb down carrying dummies. Other dummies are lowered by lines from the fire tower.
