PM Winston Churchill visits an anti-aircraft battery, lays a brick in a wall and drops a cigar.
Titles read: "MR CHURCHILL VISITS A GUN STATION".
Somewhere in Britain.
Various shots show Prime Minister Winston Churchill visiting a gun station, also known as an anti-aircraft battery, "in the formidable network of British Ground Defences". Churchill sees ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service) girls operating range finders for gun crews in the concrete pits as commentator tell us that more and more girls are being drafted into this work, thereby releasing men for the manning of the heavy guns.
Churchill lays a brick in a wall being built by some soldiers. A cigar falls out of his pocket and an officer picks it up for him. Churchill walks off, accompanied by his daughter, Mary, in ATS uniform (trousers!).
