Summary: Unedited film of members of the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps at a rest camp (Le Tréport) in France, September 1918.
Description: WAACs at a temporary shelter serve food to a waiting queue of other WAACs, all very camera-conscious. A WAAC platoon route marches across open moorland. WAACs erect bell tents in woodland with a village in the distance - some of them lie down to relax or write letters, and a group with towels and bathrobes prepares to take a bath. Two of the WAACs in close-up, very camera-conscious and giggling.
