Summary: Jumbled material of the British forces on the Palestine Front, 1918 (?).
Description: All very dark, poor quality film. It includes scenes of Gurkhas in trenches, 60-pounder guns firing, British soldiers walking through a lemon grove and other British soldiers resting. This is followed by two soldiers using a field telephone, some pack camels, a French mounted formation on the march, a panorama of a city with a castle (probably Aleppo), ruins in the desert, and a trench scene, finishing with a scene of Arab women carrying water jars on their heads down a road.
