A short amateur film of the Clark family on the beach at Broadstairs followed by friends and neighbours filling sandbags with earth - as part of the community's preparations for air-raids.
The Clark family are seen on the beach at Broadstairs where they sit eating a picnic. This is followed by scenes of the Clark family and their neighbours filling sandbags with earth by digging in a patch of waste ground close to their homes on a large estate. The bags of earth are to be used for protection against damage caused by air-raids.
