Apropos of nothing in particular I came across this video made by the Commonwealth Film Unit in 1967 which contained a lot of footage I have not seen before and thought it might be worth posting here. At the time of its making the Commonwealth Film Unit was one of the more creative elements of the media in Australia.

While the subject is the RAAF the first half could apply to any of the British and Commonwealth forces in Europe but the second half is more RAAF orientated. The Lancaster shown at the beginning and end of the video is "G for George" and is a central exhibit in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
