Shots of shipyard and factory during World War One.
The Sinews of War.
Location of events unknown / unclear.
Opens with shot of soldiers going up and down steps; wearing bedrolls over shoulders; some carrying boxes etc. - don't know what's going on. Men (mostly old; past military age) & women working at shipyard; greasing the ways; etc. to prepare for ship launch
Expanding iris on a woman wearing helmet; and wrapped in Union Jack (dressed as Britannia) under the flag she wears a little frilly number; she spreads her arms in a dramatic pose; speaks to camera. Looks like part of some war pageant.
Pan on framework; beams going every which way - looks like something being built but looks like something's been bombed also. Tracking shot moving slowly forward over huge metal structures; looking down at big holes on top with bolts sticking up around them; with ladders sticking into the biggest kind; some sort of tanks?
Scaffolding on sides, continue past these things - far below is factory floor; with boards stacked up. Giant coils; pallets; some men walking; wall; huge door in background.
Most on ON 410 H.
