Description: Opening CUs of AMRCR (anti-mine reconnaissance castor roller) and Goat (demolition charge) on front of Churchill AVRE (disarmed Mk IV). Tank moves forward and then reverses across beach - Austin 8 HP Open Tourer parked in the background. Spectators watch as tank pivots, demonstrating the ability of the roller wheels to change direction quickly. AVRE reverses onto LCT(5) 2438 and then disembarks. Cut to HA.MS from test wall at top of the beach as LCT 2438 approaches shore. Onboard the LCT men measure the clearance around the parked AVRE. 2438 lowers vehicle ramp and the tank disembarks, passing up mined beach (one explosion) to place goat beneath camera position. Various MS and CUs as goat is placed against wall - dragons teeth anti-tank obstacles are visible along the beach. AVRE disengages and reverses down beach. CUs of connecting rod and discarded coupling and pins.
