  • Description

    Wounded soldiers go to show. New Brighton, Merseyside.

    World War One. Wounded soldiers going to see a show at New Brighton. Shot of wounded men coming off an army truck; from the back. Crutches; canes; bandages on heads; arms; legs; etc. Some of them tip their hat as they come off--I especially like the next to last; who looks straight into the camera ; as he lifts his hat to it. Next; shot of the men filing into the theatre. All sorts of uniforms; and injuries. Some look at camera; some don't; some are joking with each other; etc. Some of this is sad. War damage; casualties; cripples; handicapped; veterans.
