    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Germany.

    Troops pull on ropes to launch one man gliders down hillside. The aircraft take off. Crowds of people watch, some in Nazi uniforms, some are civilians.

    Different angle of glider being launched. Hitler Youth boys help in the launch.

    More views of gliders being launched and in flight. Shots of children looking up. Lots of different designs are shown. Some are shown doing aerobatics. Good shots of one of the better gliders as it circles the air field.

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

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