Tell England is set before the outbreak of WW1 and shows the friendship between two men before they enlist. Both directors had close memories of Gallipoli, as did Fay Compton's brother, Compton Mackenzie. Asquith's father H. H. Asquith had been Prime Minister at the time of the Gallipoli Landings, a fact which drew press attention to the film, while Geoffrey Barkas had personally fought in the Gallipoli campaign.
