Servicemen in the Far East send personal messages home to their loved ones in Manchester and elsewhere in the North West. The film opens in a garden setting with pagodas as the men arrive in jeeps. Messages are delivered in relaxed settings around the grounds, including a scene in which three sailors are fishing by a river. The film ends with the men walking past the camera in single file, waving and saying their goodbyes, before piling back into their jeeps and driving off as ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’ plays in the background.
