  • Description

    London Airport.

    A York transport plane comes to a standstill on the tarmac. The doors are opened to show several crates of monkeys inside. The crates are put onto wagons and taken to the animal hotel (quarantine building). The monkey crates are unloaded. Women put trays of nuts and monkey food into the crates and the creatures grab at it.

    A sick monkey is carried into a surgery room. An RSPCA man wipes the monkey with cotton wool. The monkey is then carried into another room and put into a straw-bedded cage. An electric fire is placed in front of the cage.

    Note: several news cuttings on file.

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.
