This training film for the West Sussex Home Guard shows, by example, how to organise and set up roadblocks. Intercut with diagrams, the film shows the best positions for gun emplacements. Concrete blocks and obstacles are made ready, as are camouflaged positions. At Battle Stations we see the roadblock assembled. Thatched cottages are a bad choice for a command posts and a model cottage is set alight to illustrate the point. An iron shed is shown to make a better alternative.
