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.
