  • Description

    Titles read: "And now to proceed to another famous pair - Clapham & Dwyer, when we met the other day having a spot of bother in a spot of golf."

    Location of events unknown (an outdoor golf course).

    Comedy team Clapham and Dwyer perform their comedy routine on a golf course. Dwyer attempts to teach Clapham how to play golf but he gets totally confused (and confusing) with words like 'driver' and 'tee'.

    He keeps falling over and missing the ball as he attempts to drive off. He finally kicks the golf ball away. They move onto another part of the course where Clapham produces an clothes iron when asked to get an iron. They then attempt putting when Clapham is called away as "there is a lady at the gate with a pram" waiting for him.

    This is duplicate of item in Pathetone PT 072 - see separate record for details.

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.
