Other titles:INVASION EQUIPMENT TRIALS [Allocated Series Title]
Description: Introductory captions explain the need for the Bulk Petrol Installation as an intermediate stage between ocean tankers or marine pipeline, and motor transport. A mixture of film, photographs and diagrams traces the progress of fuel from the pipeline, through the Balance, Storage and Filling sections, to waiting road tankers - International 2-1/2-ton K7s. Concluding sequence emphasises the need to guard against fire: personnel are permitted no matches or lighters on the premises; no hobnail boots; adequate fire-fighting equipment and constant water supply to be secured; and above all, "No Smoking".
