  • Description

    Wounded soldiers river entertainment - Cunard Lines trips on Mersey. Liverpool, Merseyside.

    Cunard Lines provided weekly boat trips on the River Mersey for recuperating wounded soldiers. Soldiers on deck pass by girl holding up a box; each taking a cigarette. Another girl hands out pieces of paper - maybe programs for the entertainment. Pan over soldiers sitting on deck; and a conductor waving his baton. Another view of soldiers; nurses; seated on boat; band playing. Shot of ship passing to right; with lots of people aboard.
