This fascinating silent documentary/ propaganda film was shot by two official war cinematographers, Geoffrey Mains and John McDowell. Depicting the preliminaries and early days of the Battle of Somme, the film was a great success, watched by around 20 million British people in the first six weeks of exhibition and was distributed in eighteen other countries.

We are screening this remarkable film as part of the Somme 100 Commemorations. Details on the Newhaven Fort website
