    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In London we see various shots demonstrating a special torch that fits in the bottom of a gas-mask case to enable walkers to shed a tiny circle of light on the ground when walking home in the blackout.

    We then see brief shots of a cycle valet service in a small town in the South of England (exact location is not specified). A man on a bike pulls up and leaves his bike with a worker who is seen cleaning and repairing it.

    In Turin, Italy, we see a new bicycle that is partly propelled by the movement of the saddle and handlebars. A man rides the bike along a road, looking like he is having a fairly easy time of it. Another cyclist on a normal bike behind him is working pretty hard to keep up with him.

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.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
