  • Short Summary

    Soldiers' children born and brought up on the Rhine in Germany prepare to leave school and go to Britain as allies leave the country.

  • Description

    No title - paperwork reads - "All home for Christmas" Pathe Gazette cameramen, by special permission, obtain history making pictures of our army's last days in the Rhine.'

    Intertitle - 'Teacher tells them what "Blighty's" like, they were all born on the Rhine!'

    M/S of a group of little girls and boys, the camera pans across to the female teacher talking to them, they listen avidly.

    Intertitle - 'Tommies kiddies - 320 - leave their 10 year old Garrison School (now closed) for the last time.'

    M/S as they run out of the school door and gates. M/S of the children playing and teachers supervising, it looks like ring-a-ring-a-roses. L/S of soldiers lined up, they salute as the Union Jack is lowered.
