These lively seaside scenes at Blackpool take place against the backdrop of war, with uniformed soldiers amid the crowds on the beach. There's plenty of fun to be had splashing about in the sea, riding on donkeys and eating oysters. This newsreel story is beautifully shot, and includes a glorious panorama across the bustling beach and upwards to the tip of Blackpool Tower.
