Some of you old lags might like to see these old RASC Clips
Pure fiction, the tank stayed on the Antar, and the clerks were sober.
The Galloping Grocers.....
Wow! Marvellous stuff! My Da was in the RASC from 1939 to 1949 as a driver/mechanic and in the first reel at about 08:35, you can see him going up the gangplank to get on board the ship! He probably never knew he was being filmed, though. Cheers for posting that, mucker.
Sent a link to my dad ( Workshops Coy Benghazi 1947) - I'll let you know whether he spots any mates!
Thanks for posting - great site!
Absolutely classic! The Conqueror on the back of the Antar was particularly good - looked like it was going through Ludgershall!
Reel 1 & the clipped voice chappy talking about pay...Some things NEVER change huh ? Great clips I love all the old Pathe stuff.
