    British camp among ruins - Tommy doing his washing.

    British camp among ruins. Pan across mess; all sorts of stuff lying about; piles of rubble; laundry hanging on wire; and a bunch of these big rounded things - half-circles of corrugated metal ? stacked up. Some Brit soldiers walking through. A shack - a man enters it. Snow on ground. Pan on to right, looking out over hills & brush.

    CU Laundry in a primitive way: soldier scrubbing something spread out on a board; another guy behind him is shaking a cloth over fire; drying it. Another scene of men doing washing: 1 guy poking stick in steaming pot; other guy again scrubbing. LS ruins - unrecognisable destruction which must have been a town.

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.
