    The full title reads "Melbourne AUSTRALIA'S "OLD CROCKS" 22 relics "shake their old bones" in annual run like ours - to Brighton!"

    Melbourne, Australia.

    Several shots of the men dressed in period costume and made up for the occasion - false moustache, beards, make-up etc. - preparing their vintage cars for the start of the old crocks race. Crowds are gathered to watch the race. Various shots of the race. Crocks go very slowly, some break down and the winner is pushed to the finishing line - quite amusing.

Images from World War One. These disturbing stills show the extraordinary effects of shell shock on war soldiers.

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

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.
