Description: Interviewer Kenneth Wolstenholme meets RAF men disembarking from a Bristol Britannia of Transport Command at Waterbeach air station after a tour of duty in Cyprus. They all express satisfaction with life in the RAF - better pay, companionship, opportunity for travel, sporting facilities, etc. "I'm only young and I don't think I could earn as much pocket money in civilian life." Wolstenholme concludes by ordering the audience to find out about life in the RAF "...and do it now."
