  • Description

    Titles read: "ABOARD A SOVIET SHIP".

    Australia.

    M/S of Soviet flag being hoisted on ship. Several shots of wool and other supplies being loaded onto Russia-bound ships at an Australian port. Various shots of the members of the crew of the ship, including some women.

    We see the women's feminine-looking quarters with frilly curtains and cushions and shots of the mixed crew sitting about in a rest room and playing chess. Some stand around a piano while someone plays a patriotic song. A man looks through a porthole and sings along.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
