An unusual and interesting plea for peace set in Depression-era England. Rome, a demobilized WW I major, attempts to organize a reunion of veterans that will include not only British troops, but French and German men as well. Losing his job--and his income--Rome becomes dispirited and

loses interest in his pacifistic quest; he even considers suicide for a time. His old army orderly, Livesey, a streetwise noncommissioned officer, rallies to him and helps see him through his depression, and the reunion of onetime enemies takes place after all. Clips from this film were released

as a short subject, CAMP CONCERT, in 1941, in the second year of WW II.
