  • Description

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of the couples kissing quite passionately, people hugging children, crowds, at arrival of American soldiers' wives to New York on USS 'Argentina'. Large hall with women moving through. Various shots of the women and children eating at large tables. Several shots of the women looking at New York from the ship as it nears the harbour.

    Woman holding a child with man standing next to her. She is speaking into mike - natural sound, poor quality. Woman is answering questions from the press. Another family, wife answering questions. Another family, man is speaking into mike,child crying, woman trying to stop her. More shots of the united young families talking into mikes.

    Natural sound only - poor quality, it is difficult to make sense.
