    Titles read: "TO STAB THE NIGHT!"

    Somewhere in England.

    Various good shots of men of the Searchlight Detachments in training. They march across a parade ground and into a hut, they are instructed in a classroom and taught by officers outside how to handle the huge searchlight. Soldiers manoeuvre the huge sound detectors. Several shots show how the searchlight, arc lamp and projector fit together. Brief shots of a searchlight in the night sky.

    Note: film quality is not very good - could be decomposing.
