If War Should Come - vol 3 (1939-41) of 3 BFI compilation DVD sets of shorts from The GPO Film Unit.

12-minute film about laying an underground phone cable from Amersham to Aylesbury. First few minutes are irrelevant views of Oxford. Life seems very slow and relaxed in those days, but commentary has first oblique references to preparations for war.

Cable-feeding thingie

Rejects - probably mostly identifiable if anyone wants to play, but unlikely to get pages unless interesting
