  • Description

    Canadians at Slough - remarkable tent pegging and baseball competition. England.

    Pathe's description says remarkable tent pegging -- what that refers to is soldiers on horseback riding madly toward camera; with a pole as if they are playing polo; and knocking a peg out of the ground. Three men do this. Then CU of a man on pony which turns round a few times and rears up. Canadian soldiers play baseball: Shots of a few batters hitting; running. Then shot of fielder throwing ball.

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.
