"A sophisticated retelling of the Battle of the Somme which includes an outstanding montage 'over the top' sequence

This film about the events of the Somme, produced by New Era, continued in style of British Instructional's series of battle reconstruction films. It was principally the brainchild of Geoffrey Barkas and writer Boyd Cable (Ernest Ewart), both of whom were at the Somme." British Film Institute on BFIPlayer

Filming Locations (re-enactment): Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire, UK.
Also some official war scenes provided by the Imperial War Museum.

One aircraft sequence...
