A special screening of rare and
unseen films of Sheffield and South Yorkshire men sending filmed messages home
from India and Burma at the end of WW2. The films were screened at local
cinemas in 1944-5 such as the Regent in Barkers Pool to wives and sweethearts
back home as a way of increasing morale; a sort of one way
Skype of their day, they are remarkable and moving documents.
Professor Steve Hawley of Manchester Met University has traced some of
the families of the men in the films and they have been invited to this unique
screening, to meet other families of men of the “Forgotten Army”, fighting far
from Sheffield where leave was impossible and conditions were harsh. Join us
for this recreated screening and specially made film of the Calling Blighty
Sheffield messages, where just as in 1944 the audience will mix tears with
laughter seeing their men speak of their love for their families and thoughts
of local Sheffield landmarks.
