Echos of the Great War | Directed by Glenda Campi
Mrs. Dowey is entertaining three other charwomen at tea; they are all proud of their sons in the army (1914-1918). The curate arrives with Kenneth Dowey of the Black Watch in tow. But Mrs. Dowey has no son; she only pretends after seeing Kenneth's name in a newspaper. Since he has no family, he agrees to spend his leave with her and Mrs. Dowey has the long wished for experience of mothering a boy. When Private Dowey does not return, the old lady puts away his effects and bravely sets out to work.
We meet Sister Mary Bartholomew, a Catholic Nun in 1914 based in New Zealand who is knitting socks for the war effort. She decides to put her name in one of them reaching Corporal Cooper in France who writes back. Although never meeting, a friendship is struck, whilst unaware she is a Nun. Poignant, spiritual and dramatic.
