Description:

Servicemen from Manchester, Salford and beyond send personal messages to their loved ones from Burma. Messages are delivered from a variety of locations: the banks of the Irrawaddy River, in front of temples, next to two bullocks and a cart, around a fire making tea, at a roadside and amongst cleared land. The last three soldiers wave to the camera as they walk away and a voiceover says “Cheerio to our boys in Burma!”.
