• Short Summary

    South African troops arrive in Libya while Germans of the Afrika Corps are shipped off.

  • Description

    Titles read: "MILITARY MATHEMATICS".

    Libya.

    Various shots of South African troops arriving in troopships to build up the Allied Forces in Libya. They come off the ships and walk towards a train with their kit bags.

    Several shots of German prisoners of the Afrika Corps preparing to board ships that will take them to internment camps. One German soldier sticks his tongue out at the camera (commentator says "Really!"). Another smiles and gives the V sign (perhaps using the alternative meaning rather than the sign for victory). More shots of prisoners in boats and being transferred onto a waiting liner.
