Film Details:

35mm, black & white, sound

Running Time:

11 mins 46 secs


Servicemen from Manchester, Stockport and Salford send personal messages home to their loved ones from the grounds of Central Studios in Bombay. The men deliver their messages in a variety of set-piece situations: in the garden, in a courtyard, listening to the radio by a parked car and on a bench. Includes a brief scene in which one group ‘interrupts’ filming to ask what is going on and are invited to deliver their own messages. The film ends with the group of contributors walking silently away from the camera, turning back to wave as they go.
