  • Description

    Full title reads: "Scotland. A whole city makes whoopee! Glasgow cheerfully suffer annual 'sack' by 5,000 'bandit' students in great Charity Rag."

    Glasgow, Scotland.

    University students, many in fancy dress costumes, drive through the city on decorated lorries and vans. They shake tins at the people in the crowd to encourage them to give money.

    A large parade led by bagpipers walks through the city centre. The walkers are followed by more decorated vans.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
