    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unknown or unclear.

    Cuts from newsreel 47/71 - Scots gather for the highland games at Dunoon, Ayrshire in Scotland.

    Several shots of highland games - men in unitards wrestling on the show ground; a woman in traditional dress does some Scottish dancing; a man in a kilt puts the shot; men playing bagpipes. A little girl walks along carrying a prize shield - a man carries her and the shield. A man prepares to throw the hammer.

    Piped bands march around the arena. A man prepares to toss the caber. C/Us of young Scottish girls smiling at camera.

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.
