• Short Summary

    Canadian soldiers entertain English children at a big Christmas party at their camp.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CANADIANS ENTERTAIN THE CHILDREN".

    Somewhere in England.

    Various shots of Canadian soldiers entertaining English children at a big Christmas party at their base. The children arrive in an army truck and are helped down by soldiers.

    Several shots of them at the party, watching a conjurer on a stage and being given presents by Father Christmas (Sergeant Major Coy Purt from Edmonton, Alberta). Nice shot of a Canadian soldier talking to children and looking at their presents with them.

    Cataloguer's note: ahh! This film fairly warms the cockles of your heart!
