Title:WADING TRIALS FOR MOTOR TRANSPORT 2 [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 1019
Other titles:INVASION EQUIPMENT TRIALS [Allocated Series Title]
Description: LCT(3) 340 disembarks jeep and trailer, Dodge Weapons Carrier, and a GMC 2-1/2-ton 6x4 cargo truck - the three vehicles drive off parallel to the beach, then reverse course to come ashore near the camera position. Further wading trials follow - the Weapons Carrier gets stuck in soft sand offshore, and despite the co-driver's efforts to push the vehicle clear, it requires the assistance of the 6x4 to enable the carrier to regain the beach. LCM(3) 529 is visible in the background at the end of the sequence.
