Fred Williams was part of the ambulance crew of Honley that created an educational film in 1972. At that time, the ambulances were quite basic, much like bread vans. With the suspension of the vehicles being as they were, the ease of the journey would depend on the driver’s knowledge of the roads and their skills as a driver. The crew put together the film in their own time, and the film was designed to show the correct medical techniques to use. The film shows the accidents people encounter on a camp site and the skills the ambulance staff use to help them. This film was captured on two reels of 8mm film and was sectioned in two parts by the filmmaker Fred Williams.
