    Titles read: "CLASS GLASS!"

    Tyrol, Austria.

    Various shots of the making of a stained glass window, destined for a Tyrolean church. A man works on a drawing of the original design; pieces of cardboard serve as the templates for sections of glass which are painted to match the colours in the drawing.

    The pieces of glass are baked in an oven to make the paint fast. A marker puts the glass sections in place and secures them by heating small pieces of lead between each section.

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.
