Early war British training video for the laying of D.8 cable by the use of the truck-mounted "Mechanical Layer, No.1". Lovely insight to Signals training and equipment handling.

It's nice to see and note the use of the separate '03patt belt for suspending the linesman pliers and associated pliers frog, so the removal of the '37patt webbing when going to work does not "de-tool" each signaller. Also note the use of jack-knife belt clip loops - something that, until now, I had always thought was a post-war accessory for RCoS troops.
