Firewatch Dog 1943

1 mins United Kingdom

A Ministry of Information trailer that uses a dose of the unexpected to grab the public’s attention. A dozing English Bull Terrier takes on the responsibility of fire watch duty, when two men prove to be ignorant to the dangers of an un-extinguished cigarette.

The IWM Film Archive is the oldest film archive in the UK, holding over 20,000 hours of film, video and digital material and covering the two World Wars and all conflicts involving British or Commonwealth Forces since the start of the Twentieth Century to the present. Our collection also reflects aspects of civilian life in wartime, military life in peacetime, military exercises and operations.
