Over 600,000 Canadians were enlisted to the Canadian Expeditionary Force in WWI. Many were British-born emigres, returning to defend their homeland but leaving their newly settled families far behind. This film was likely captured at the recently established Canadian Training School in Bexhill-on-Sea, Sussex in 1917. Unfortunately it is missing sections from the beginning and end.
