• Short Summary

    Teenage boys work in a shipyard, then have a holiday at a summer camp.

  • Description

    Socks, Shorts, Shoes (aka Boy Engineers). Part of the ALL THE LATEST! issue.

    Somewhere in northern England.

    At a shipyard "somewhere in the north" we see various shots of teenage boy engineers at work, doing jobs that were previously done by men who have joined the services. In the workshops we see more young men at work.

    Then we see several shots of the same boys on holiday at a summer camp. They are woken by a man with a piercing whistle and run to the river to have a wash. Then they dry off in the sun and play various sports. The boys wash up after dinner and have a bit of a singsong with boys playing the drums, a banjo and a harmonica.

    End shot of a group of boys looking through a tent flap. Commentator asks "Are they downhearted?" and we hear the boys cry "No!".
