    Security on the March (1943) is an instructional film that teaches viewers the safest way to evade detection while traveling in tanks.

    And: World War II Veteran Lloyd Heller Shares Details About Production of 1943 Tank Training Film

    "In August, an e-mail came to motion picture archivist Carol Swain’s inbox asking about a World War II training film called Security on the March. Richard Herde contacted the Motion Picture unit looking for information about a film his 100-year-old uncle, Corporal Lloyd Heller, had helped make while serving as a tanker in the United States Army. As luck would have it, Heller remembered the exact title of the film, which made it much easier to find, and a beautiful 35mm negative was preserved here at the National Archives. The motion picture preservation lab scanned Security on the March and made a DVD so that Heller could view the film for the first time in over 70 years."

    Ps. This version stops the film at various points and comments about what's just been seen.
