Cartoon trailer encouraging public to recycle waste paper - slightly surreal!
Title reads: "M of I - Government Official".
Ministry of Information cartoon trailer encouraging public to salvage waste paper.
Sign - "Save Your Waste Paper" - standing in middle of field of paper. One of the bits of paper jumps up and whistles. A truck speeds in and comes to a halt, all the bits of paper leap onto the truck. The truck despatches the paper at a processing plant.
The paper is shredded and pulped by eccentric-looking machine. The pulp is transformed into various useful items for the war effort: first aid boxes, blankets, ammunition, weapons and food. We see the items going down conveyor belts and through doors marked "Army", "Navy" and "RAF".
Crates of supplies in a stack. Crates are lifted by gigantic wasp which flies through flak and gunfire. Wasp drops supplies by parachute to cheering troops on front line. Surreal!
End title reads: "Save more and more waste paper please!"
NB: item is from Gazette issue 45/6.
