Various shots behind the scenes at the Air Ministry's Meteorological station in Dunstable. Girls sort and record written weather reports onto charts and men plot the course of the weather. A girl from the W.A.A.F. (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) checks instruments in case set up in a field, she takes readings and measures rainwater. She then releases a balloon into the air to determine the wind variation. M/S of a crystal set into a holder, she looks into it, M/S of her image in the crystal as she walks away.
