    Just watched this 1954 film with Jack Warner and wondered if anyone knows where it was filmed.

    It was shot on heathland, the only place mentioned is Reading. Could be somewhere in Berkshire or possibly Surrey.

    Thanks folks.

    I've tracked some of the locations of the film with the help of Network's superb quality dvd release.
    The Nissen Hut camp where the main characters live was in Easthampstead Park, off Nine Mile Ride between Crowthorne and Bracknell. My dad's family lived there when he was about 13/14 , around the time of filming, for a couple of years before being housed in Crowthorne.

    The pub was The Who'd 'A' Thot' It on Nine Mile Ride which was closed then demolished in 2003. I came second in a baby contest outside this pub.



    Gordon Harker, the landlord.

    I could'nt find a more recent photo of the pub but this is apparently the site now.



    Heath Lake, just off Nine Mile Ride.
