    Clearing operations in occupied Sicily.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "SICILY - FURTHER PICTURES".

    Sicily, Italy.

    Various shots of the British bren gun carrier entering town of Paterno. The infantry follows. They are greeted by the inhabitants. People kiss them. Various shots of the RAMC (Royal Army Medical Corps) unit setting up in the town to attend to sick and wounded. Various shots of a Canadian regiment with the job of clearing roads - they use bulldozer to clear rocks away. Various shots of the deck of a hospital ship in Syracuse harbour covered by wounded and more going aboard. Some are helped by the ship's cranes. They still smile through.
