    Item title reads: " Nottingham's Annual hospital 'Rag'."

    Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

    M/S of a procession of motor lorries, as they file through the streets with students on tractors acting out various themes, such as a mock chemist and students dressed as babies on a horse drawn cart. They stage a mock bullfight with people in costume, one dressed as a bull. L/S of students in various historical costumes waving to the crowd. A pitched battle takes please with bags of flour being thrown, and some of the onlookers, including policemen join in as well. They grab the policeman in a sort of scrum and whirl him round.

    Note: Fantastic footage of the battle - it's a bit of a bun fight, with police joining in - but all in good fun. Good student stunt.

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.
