People in and around London prepare for the possibility of war. Several people look at a map posted on the side of a building. Closer shots of posters reading: "City of Westminster Air Raid Precautions, Fitting Gas Masks." Women and children gathering cut tree limbs from a street and construction of some kind, perhaps laying a sidewalk (these scenes are not described in the dope sheet). Shots of people waiting in line outside a building, then shots of people trying on gas masks and attempting to breathe through them. A child-sized mask is placed on the face of a crying toddler. More scenes of people waiting in line and trying on masks, in different locations.
