    Footage of wounded soldier being carried onto liner for rest and recuperation.

  • Description

    Medicine. Location of events unknown.

    World War One; casualties. Medical; military. Wounded British servicemen on Cunard liner trip for some serious rest & recuperation. Stretchers carried up gang plank. Shot on deck; with men and nurses crowded everywhere; a string quartet playing. Another shot of same. CU a man - music hall performer type comedian - entertaining; telling a joke or something as soldiers and nurses watch. CU 3 men standing by ship's wheel; one of them; an RAF soldier who must have been in a burning plane; has a horrifying scarred & disfigured burned face. Very sad but actually he seems fairly happy. GV soldiers applauding.
