Soldiers' Radio Belgrade. Opening of the winter programme at the National Theatre. Young girls performing their dance act (scantily clad, with hearts on their blouses and cuffs) accompanied by the Belgrade Radio Dance Band. There are 11 girls, seven of whom wear a letter on their chests: B–E–L–G–R–A–D (Belgrade, in German). The soldier standing on the left conducting is Hans Georg Schütz, a famous German accordionist and composer, who served the army during the war as a musician at the Belgrade Radio. (This jolly chap was not a Nazi, and he continued his musical career after the war as well.) At the time, it was common for celebrities to support the war effort by enlisting in the army; some of the best known examples are American actor Clark Gable (airman) and German boxer Max Schmeling (paratrooper).

Vojnički radio Beograd. Otvaranje zimskog programa u Narodnom pozorištu. Mlade devojke izvode svoju plesnu tačku (oskudno obučene, sa srcima na bluzama i manžetama) uz muzičku pratnju plesnog orkestra Radio-Beograda. Devojaka ima 11, od kojih sedam na prsima nosi po jedno slovo: B–E–L–G–R–A–D (Beograd, na nemačkom). Vojnik koji stoji levo i diriguje je Hans Georg Šic, poznati nemački harmonikaš i kompozitor, koji je za vreme rata služio vojsku kao muzičar na beogradskom radiju. (Ovaj veseli čikica nije bio nacista, i svoju muzičku karijeru je nastavio i posle rata.) U to vreme je bilo uobičajeno da poznate ličnosti podrže ratne napore prijavljivanjem u vojsku; neki od najpoznatijih primera su američki glumac Klark Gejbl (avijatičar) i nemački bokser Maks Šmeling (padobranac).
