On leave in Malabar Hill in Bombay, servicemen send personal messages home to their loved ones in Manchester, Salford and Stockport. After an opening view of the Bombay skyline, a group of soldiers stroll along a track past the camera as an officer with a handheld microphone invites three of them to deliver their own message home. Further contributors are filmed in other parts of the leafy grounds before the group walk away from the camera and back down the track, turning to wave and say goodbye as they depart.
