• Short Summary

    Nice shots of smiling British soldiers arriving in the Middle East.

  • Description

    Titles read: "MORE MEN FOR 8TH ARMY".

    Middle East.

    Various shots of new British soldiers arriving on troopships in the Middle East to build up the 8th Army units. They walk down the gangplank, carrying their kit bags. Nice shots of smiling soldiers giving the 'V for victory' sign. Man with bad teeth mops his brow.

    Commentator says "From the word go they get right down to business" and we see a soldier whispering something in an Arab's ear, then walking into a toilet!
