An aerogram is received in Canada by the parents of a soldier stationed in Britain. Reading between the lines, we gain a vivid impression of the intensive training Canadian troops received overseas in wartime. We witness their strenuous exercises, assault courses, recreations and games. Finally, the film demonstrates the purpose behind all this thorough preparation: actual scenes taken during the Dieppe and Bruneval raids.
