Military Training Film Explains How American Soldiers Should Behave in a British Pub

(via) This short instructional film dates back to the middle of World War II when over a million American soldiers were being amassed in preparation for the Allied invasion of Europe (D-Day, June 6th, 1944). The more you know…

In 1943, the American OWI helped create a film that they showed to all those who were to be stationed in Great Britain. This is an excerpt from the US Military Training film “How to Behave in Britain.” Burgess Meredith, of later fame as the Penguin in the Batman series (he did a great deal of other stuff as well and much of it quite good), takes the American GI through the ins and outs of the British pub as it existed in wartime Britain.
