Summary: RAMC dentists treat patients in 50th (Northumbrian) Division's sector of the Normandy beach-head.
Description: Two British soldiers arrive at the mayor's house in the village of Juaye-Mondaye where 48th Field Dressing Station RAMC's dental section is temporarily quartered; the cameraman examines the signboard announcing its presence there.
