Instructional cartoon reminds aircrews always to wear oxygen masks when flying at high altitudes.
Subtitled "a story with a moral" humorous little cartoon story suggests the dangerous consequences of failing to wear oxygen masks. Pilot and gunner of climbing British plane, not noticing the increasingly frantic gesticulations of the panel oxygen indicator, become steadily drowsier. Nazi fighters, piloted by ugly creatures who are gulping down oxygen, approach unobserved and are about to down the British plane when its crew, suddenly remembering their oxygen masks, pull them on and, alert once more, shoot down their assailants.
The 'Blitz' – from the German term Blitzkrieg ('lightning war') – was the sustained campaign of aerial bombing attacks on British towns and cities carried out by the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) from September 1940 until May 1941.
