    Lady Pat's regiment goes home - the final farewell. Liverpool, Merseyside.

    Canadian troops departing from Liverpool on ship. Pathe says Lady Pat's Regiment -- don't know if they mean Princess Pat or if there's also some lady with the same name who also has a regiment. Anyway; film is a jumping around montage of shots -- of soldiers cheering and waving hats; DS soldiers boarding --going up ramp into ship; carrying all their gear./ sold man with medallion making speech. Large ship moving (various shots).

    Departure. World War One; homecoming.

    I'm by no means an expert on WWI, but I believe "Lady Pat's Regiment" in this instance refers to Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry.

    I also think this is probably that regiment embarking for home on 8 March 1919. They left from Liverpool on the SS Carmania, and the shots of the ship at 00:37 appear to match photographs of that ship from that era.
