  • Short Summary

    People leaving on ship ( could be Lusitania ).

  • Description

    Soldiers departing on transport ship. Wide shot panning slowly on big ship with people waving from it. Then shots of a small crowd of men in the street. They seem to be waiting for something but it's not apparent just what is going on.

    Cataloguer's note: A Pathe website user has informed us that the ship featured is the R.M.S. Lusitania.

    If this film is indeed the R.M.S. Lusitania, (and it certainly looks like it), then the phrase "Soldiers departing on transport ship" should be replaced.

    Again assuming that this IS the Lusitania, then the clip's date range should end at 1915, the date the ship was torpedoed and sunk.
