Summary: I. "Food for thought." Urges all factory workers to take advantage of the nutritious and appetising meals offered them by their canteens instead of taking sandwiches to work, which is a waste of their home-rations. Average canteen meal has a very high nutritional value, which is checked by scientists in government laboratories. Lease-lend tinned foods are singled out as excellent and there is praise too for the canteen kitchen staff. Final argument is from lips of canteen gourmet who declares "Jolly good grub, I reckon, very tasty, very sweet."
II. "Allies resume the offensive." Commentary speaks of "enemy's retreat which threatens to become a rout" as film shows the slow progress of the Allied armies, hampered by poor weather. View of Sangro River, now crossed, and mules used for mountain transport.
III. "Surrender or else." Churchill visits Malta on his way to Cairo. Formal poses by the Conference participants. Stalin's absence explained away. Conference decides Japan must give up all Pacific conquests won since 1914.
