  • Description

    Titles read: "BAGGED BY THE CAMERA".

    Location of events unknown - probably London.

    Various new handbags, purses and compacts are seen being used by models. The first handbag is in black suede, with a top piece that folds out to reveal three small mirrors "... so you can look at any part of your head, except inside", says the commentator. A vanity case-style handbag has several compartments for make-up, comb and perfume.

    Two novelty clutch bags are seen; one in suede has tiny charms all over it, the other is made of calfskin with a newspaper print. A tiny cocktail purse or compact is decorated with the names of different drinks; two similar purses have the names of writers and playing cards on them. Another compact has a clock face on it "to make sure you won't be more than half an hour late". A woman opens the compact and powders her nose.

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!
