    Full title reads: "HITCH HIKING IN THE MIDDLE EAST".

    Egypt.

    Various shots of the British soldiers trying to hitch hike into Cairo during their leave. Full army trucks flash past. Various shots of the soldiers waiting at special War Department pick up stops. They look like proper bus shelters with famous London underground sign with "W.D. PICK-UP" written in place of the name of a station. A truck pulls up and soldiers climb on.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
