Title:WITH A CANADIAN BRIGADE AT YPRES [Main Title]
Film Number:IWM 143
Summary: I. Canadian rear areas during the Third Battle of Ypres, Western Front, late 1917.
II. The visit of Cardinal Bourne to an Australian unit on the Western Front, late 1917.
Description: Isolated Canadian soldiers walking over very muddy ground at Ypres between water-filled craters. The cameraman's comments are on the shotsheet: "Took a few pieces of wounded and prisoners coming back over bad ground. I do not think the film will be very good. Conditions were all against any good results. Could get no help - runners being killed or wounded almost every time they went out. I was at advanced Brigade GHQ".
The Cardinal arrives by car and walks past a military unit to a hut marked "Catholic Club - open to all", followed by the soldiers.
