Summary: Incomplete fictional film encouraging people in Britain to save milk, spring 1918.
Description: A young lady sits at her breakfast table drinking tea and reading the morning paper. She reads of a heavy fine imposed on someone caught watering nursery milk, and conjures up a vision of a sick child. She pours more milk into her tea, and some into a saucer for her cat. She reads of a milk shortage in the north, and thinks again of the child with its mother. "It's only a little" the caption says, "but if everyone did with less in their tea thousands of these would be saved daily for the children", showing milk churns being lined up at a dairy.
