asked the Secretary of State for War whether combat films, hitherto unseen by the actual members of. the three Services who took part in particular episodes which have been filmed, can now be made available for display to the Forces during the period of occupation of Europe in order that the Services shall have a chance of viewing the pictorial records of their achievements which by the time they are demobilised will have long since ceased to be shown in this country.

A number of films of specific operations have been made and they have all been very widely shown to the troops. I will certainly consider whether any should be shown again for the benefit of those who have missed them hitherto. Further such films are now being made.
