STK-ID 20968

[Title "École de camionnage" (Truck driving school)] Exterior shots of drivers in ranks who are listening to instructions at Camp Borden. At the command of a non-commissioned officer, drivers run to their vehicles, jeeps, trucks, armoured cars. HASs of vehicles speeding along paths on training field. Closer shots of many trucks, armoured cars speeding by the camera on rough ground, negotiating rough stretches on road labelled "Little Alcan", dodging dummy explosions, crossing rough bridge. One armoured car has to be held on the slippery road by many soldiers as it crawls ahead with two wheels in a ditch.
