A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A MUNITION WORKER (1916) [Allocated]
Summary: Untitled scenes, show female munitions workers undergoing a medical examination from a male doctor.Three women are given a cursory examination in turn, the doctor looking at their tongue and eyes, each one passing and then being given a card by a female clerk, presumably their fitness to work. An Army officer then brings in the female munitions worker who is the subject of the film, and after being seen by the doctor, she is passed to another male medic who takes a blood test. 103ft - 107ft white spacing. The images for the next scene are very badly degraded, due to fungus or water damage, but this section shows the women munitions workers clocking in for work. Cut to a good image of the female munitions worker, filling a large shell with explosives. 192ft - 195ft white spacing. Badly degrared image of scene covering women working on shells.
