Covering an unlikely combination of aircraft production, farming and bagpipes, this issue of Worker and War-Front Magazine is a diverse and entertaining mixture of home front news and information. The film begins with a Scottish bagpipe school in Edinburgh Castle, where trainee pipers prepare to perform both civilian and military duties.
