    Title reads: "Two army link up in Italy".

    Point of view shot from a truck driving along remote Italian road, truck passes American troops about to join forces with the British. Various shots of American men of the 5th Army meeting up with men of the Anzio beachhead. Hearty handshakes all round. M/S of American cameraman Irenberg greeting British cameraman Sergeant Hugget. Natural sound as soldier from London chats with soldier from Pennsylvania. M/S of American General Mark Clark walking along the road. M/S of telephone lines between both fronts being joined by engineer. More shots of soldiers from either side warmly greeting each other.

    Note: after filming three members of Army Film Unit drove to Naples to get these shots back to Britain extra fast - entering the city they got nabbed by a speed cop!
