This was the third day of filming for Magical Mystery Tour at West Malling Air Station in Maidstone, Kent.
The army base saw the filming of many of the interior and exterior shots for the television special. Among them was a scene in a hut outside the main hangar, in which Paul McCartney dressed up in army uniform as Major McCartney. Victor Spinetti appeared as a recruiting sergeant, and shouted instructions at Ringo Starr, Aunt Jessie and other passengers on the mystery trip.
