Title:OPERATION EPSOM - 49th DIVISION AT THE VILLAGE OF FONTENAY- LE-PESNEL (PART 4) [Allocated Title]
Film Number:A70 60-7
Summary: British troops enjoy a hot shower behind 49th (West Riding) Division's sector of the front line.
Description: Troops who have just had a hot shower dry themselves with towels, get dressed and cut their toenails in a farmyard in the village of Fontenay-le-Pesnel during a brief period out of the line following the capture of the Rauray spur. Men pour buckets of water into a large tank heated by a wood fire from where the shower water is drawn. Naked men scrub themselves clean in showers set up in the lee of a farmhouse.
