The 22nd Corps Cavalry was located in France. It was a composite regiment including men from "B" and "D" Squadrons from the 4th Light Horse Regiment and a Squadron from the Otago Mounted Rifles.
Interesting to note the allocation of seats to the cinema to the members of the Regiment. The previous evening the other half of the Regiment viewed the movie.
Men needed to be reminded that driving girls around in the cars was not considered to be lawful. It is noteworthy that the men needed to be reminded of this which tends to indicate that it was quite common, or common enough to prompt a reminder.
