  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - dates unclear or unknown.

    Belgium.

    Shot of a devastated street. MS of British soldier standing in the doorway of a building. A small group of mainly women refugees sit at the roadside and drink (they don't look too unhappy).

    Quick shot of British troops on guard outside a building.

    Refugees walk across town square, some push bicycles laden with their belonging. More shots of Belgian refugees on the move. Some are travelling ion wagons with their bedding and belongings. The refugees range from old people to children.

    N.B. Paperwork suggests this is April 1940.
