Worker and War Front No. 15 1945

10 mins United Kingdom

The wartime transportation system is acknowledged for its vital role in mobilizing Britain through the rigours of total war, utilizing the canals to ease some of the burden on the roads and railways. The second part of the film looks at wartime entertainment, featuring both Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby, as they entertain crowds at the legendary Stage Door Canteen venue in London.

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.
