Storyline

Just previous to his departure for South Africa and the Boer War, Gordon Frazier, a young officer in the English Army, bids an affectionate farewell to his fiancée, Gladys Mayford. In Africa, engaged in battle, Gordon is rescued from death by a young soldier, with whom he formed a slight acquaintance. Although they only meet casually, after this they become friends. One day, while together, they each receive a letter from Gladys. In Gordon's, Gladys informs him that circumstances over which she has no control compel her to break her engagement with him, and that she is returning his ring. In his friend's letter, Gladys writes that she still loves and has confidence in him, hoping God will guide and guard him. On the eve of another battle, Gordon's friend tells him that he feels he will make his last fight in the coming engagement.

Pictured by the same actors, mostly, about a year ago
21 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In this picture Van Dyke Brooke has produced again, but from a somewhat different angle, a story (by W. Hanson Durham) that was pictured by the same actors, mostly, about a year ago. It is a story of the Boer War. The battle scenes are good. There seems to have been a regiment of English soldiers in the cast and we are given a picture of one of those famous British hollow squares such as have won many a battle. Rapid fire guns were used and there is much smoke. Maurice Costello plays the lead with Miss Rosemary Theby (who, of course was not in the former picture). James Morrison plays the girl's brother whom the other officer takes for her lover and who, outside of the picture, has forged his father's name. It is a better picture than the former; but it fails to convince. It stands for its battle scenes and was probably produced again because of the chance of using British soldiers. - The Moving Picture World, August 31, 1912
