  • Short Summary

    An item about ex-service women emigrating to Australia after the war.

  • Description

    Tilbury, Essex

    Intertitle: "SURPLUS WOMEN? First batch of discharged W.A.A.C.s and Land Girls leave for their new home in New South Wales".

    After the First World War, the female population is far greater than the male so many women were encouraged to emigrate.

    High angled L/S of a crowded poop deck on a passenger liner - throngs of men, women and children look towards the camera. M/S of two girls in Land Army uniforms walk along the deck towards the camera. Nice C/U of the two girls - they look a bit embarrassed and smile in a self conscious way. Good high angle M/S of a group of women on the deck - they seem in very high spirits and wave handkerchiefs at the camera.
