Firemen of the NFS at a fire station of the River Thames Formation make paddles for assault craft for the Admiralty. The paddles arrive roughly-shaped from a factory and the firemen must finish them by hand. Nearest to camera to furthest from camera, they are: Fireman G R De Vere, Fireman P E Prestidge, Fireman H S Bellingham (who went to the factory to learn the process and then taught his colleagues) and Fireman H W E Upjohn.
