Doctors Catherine Violet and Thomas Burne film part of their return trip to Malaya, where they were both stationed. Husband and wife had spent the preceding months with their children in England, as recorded in [Summer Seaside Holiday And Family Scenes] (March - October 1929).
The film-makers record their trip along the Suez Canal, departing from Port Said. Aboard ship, they film the canal banks and the peddlers and boats which populate the Canal. They also film street scenes during a stop at Aden - camels and cattle act as the beasts of burden, street sellers sell their wares and numerous signs and posters advertise in English.
Fashion Notes: This film depicts Malayan national dress and shows examples of men wearing tunics, sarongs, turbans and fezzes. The ship’s Captain is also seen in uniform.
