Unedited film of British troops in the Advance to Victory, Western Front, September 1918. A marching column behind the lines with ammunition limbers going the other way, probably 40th Division (note formation sign). A house on fire with trees nearby. A destroyed village with British General Service wagons and troops moving through. At another location, possibly Bray-sur-Somme, houses are damaged on both sides of a wide main street. A small leave- boat with camouflage markings, its deck crowded with cheering British and Dominion troops, leaves the quay for England.
