    Exact location of events unknown.

    World War One. Disabilities. Disabled veterans hosted by Lord Cheylesmore; at country estate. Opens with shot of kids having a tug of war--girls in long dresses pulling on rope; as several men watch. Shot of disabled men getting out of cars. Smiling man with a cane walks with difficulty. CU Men walk by to right. CU Boys ditto. Man helping others down from automobile. CU short bit of man holding rope; other men; young girls stand near. CU Young woman in white dress tries to strike a match to light a cigarette for a veteran with no arms (one arm has a hook; the other sleeve is empty); it takes several attempts to get it lit; which is sort of a tragicomic moment. Man exits; girl stands looking toward camera. Then it appears as if she vanishes! CU Priest (slightly sinister looking); with young men & women a few steps behind. Some of this is very sad and depressing stuff.

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.
