  • Description

    CEA (Cinema Exhibitors Association) Sports - Brighton, East Sussex.

    Charabancs full of happy partygoers driving on narrow country road. Some men standing by the road wave to them and seem to direct them on down the road.

    Eight grown men sitting astride a board which is swinging back & forth from a swing set frame; pushed by a few other men. Next; a group of women doing same (but sitting sideways on the board; in a more ladylike manner).

    Then a shot of a ride w/ a chain of bicycles going round in a circle; attached to a central frame; like a wheel w/ spokes going out to bicycles. (Looks like a merry-go-round or carousel ride - SL.) Some of the fun loving bunch are riding; while others watch.

    American cataloguer notes: 'Very twenties almost forced giddiness; Bright Young Things; etc.'

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.
