1944-46

Description:

Men from the RAF and Royal Navy serving in Burma send messages home to their loved ones in and around the Manchester area. The film opens in a camp outside a war-damaged ‘Talbot House’ in which airmen take turns to deliver their messages straight to camera. Further callers appear in an overgrown ‘monastery garden’, in front of a bridge, and on a beach. The last three men walk away from the camera towards the sea and wave as a voiceover says ‘cheerio... to your boys in Burma’.
