At a factory somewhere in Britain, two women pack a stack of jettison petrol tanks ready for dispatch to the United States Army Air Force. According to the original caption "the tanks carry a sting in their tail as a grenade has been fixed in each one which will explode on impact and turn the jettisoned tank into a fair substitute for an incendiary bomb".
