Soldiers set off from Southampton for service overseas.
Full title reads: "Southampton. 'Theirs not to reason why'! The Middlesex Regiment - the famous Diehards - leave for service overseas on eve of the holiday season."
Soldiers queue up with their kitbags on their shoulders as they wait to walk up the gangplank to get onto a troopship.
People wait on the dockside as the ship begins to move away. Troops wave from the ship as they set out on their journey.
