Description:

Men from the Army and RAF serving in Burma send personal messages back to their loved ones in Manchester and the North West. The messages are delivered straight to camera from a variety of locations: a riverbank, a jungle clearing, by a roadside, in a camp. The last group of men stand in front of a truck to deliver their messages before jumping into the back of it, cheering and waving, as the vehicle moves off.
