  • Description

    Unidentified UN showing various processes involved in making candles.

    We see wax being prepared, the wicks being laid out, various moulds and candles being cut and hung to be washed. We see the ends being trimmed. We also see the candles being wrapped in plastic for despatch.

    This is colour footage. At present I cannot ascertain the original can number - to be investigated.

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.
