Summary: The departure of a British leave boat from a French port, probably 1917.
Description: British soldiers of various regiments and branches, all wearing life jackets, embark on leave boats. One group is on board a small side-wheeler CD-8, and others on a larger vessel E0826. The larger ship moves out of harbour with ladies on the quayside waving to it as it clears the harbour mouth.
