"Life at Camp Borden is seen through the eyes of a young recruit to the Tank Corps. He and two companions arrived at camp together, and their various experiences make up the theme of this picture. Jack joined an infantry unit and his first days were spent in marching and gun drill. Ed became a dispatch rider and learnt to take his motorcycle over the roughest obstacles, while Joe found that driving a tank was a very complex operation."

"The training-camp picture is scheduled for simultaneous shooting in two languages for distribution within Canada. Thus two separate pictures will be made, one in English at Camp Borden (Ontario), the other in French at Valcartier, near Quebec City. Graham McInnes and Placide Labelle have entered the respective camps as short-term privates in the Canadian militia, to gather authentic material for scripts."

"In this film, life at Camp Borden is seen through the eyes of Joe Cartwright, a young recruit to the Tank Corps. Joe, Ed Stevens and Jack Bishop arrive at Camp Borden together. Jack joins an infantry unit, and his first days are spent in marching, and rifle and bayonet drill. Ed becomes a dispatch rider and learns to take his motorcycle over the roughest obstacles. But there is fun as well as work, as shown in some amusing sequences of a concert party. Scenes of a full-scale maneuver climax the film."
