Metropolitan Police Ambulance Team 1917

18 mins United Kingdom

Members of the Metropolitan Police are on hand to tend to the injured in this entertaining dramatised training film. The range of staged incidents includes some dramatic falls and also - in the early days of motoring - a road accident. This is an early example of the ever-popular training film, productions which offer fascinating, often unintended, insights into the social attitudes of their era as well as providing a historical record of developments in their subject matter.
