    Various shots of the Polish troops and machinery on quayside, men chatting, waiting, gathering their kit etc. Various shots of Polish troops embarking on ship on quayside. Men onboard ship singing to two men playing - one plays accordion, another a string instrument - looks like a banjo. Several shots of the jeeps and equipment unloaded off the ship.

    Various shots of Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery talking to several Polish officers at outdoor camp. Various shots of the tanks advancing through countryside. Some dead bodies seen scattered on ground. Distant explosions and smoke seen. Tanks advancing through countryside quite fast. Captured German soldiers seen. More shots of the tanks advancing, firing and being shot at - clouds of smoke seen. Disturbing footage of the men leaving a tank, seem exhausted and some look burned. Pan along a line of tank crew, they seem to be all right.
