Clifford Evans apparently hitches a lift in a pantechnicon by getting into the vehicle whilst it is moving, but the side that he gets in on would be the drivers seat, as it is set in Belgium. See more »

This is a propaganda film made in 1942,at a time when people needed help to believe in a successful end to the war at a time when not a lot was happening.It has to be said that the best British propaganda films were those that poked fun at the Nazis.Those,like this film,which were deadly serious probably didn't hit the mark because they could not at that time show exactly what was going on as the audiences would have found it too horrific.As has been previously mentioned there is not a great deal of action.It isn't as good as One of our aircraft is missingt or 49th Parallel No doubt this film would have bolstered people's faith in our Belgian allies.
