  • Description

    London.

    Intertitle: "EARL HAIG attends Garden Fete - organises by Officers Association".

    M/S of Earl Douglas Haig walking through a fete surrounded, good C/U as he walks towards the camera.

    M/S of a small crowd at the end of a field. In the foreground a woman is doing a bizarre sort of dance - she is dressed in leopard skin tunic and holds a bow and arrow. Her musical accompaniment is provided by a woman at a piano and two violinists. Various shots of little girls dressed as fairies doing a dance. M/S of two army officers watching.

    M/S of the Earl and his entourage of dignitaries walking around the fete.

    Note: the title of this story is slightly misleading - although there a few very good shots of Haig, the bulk of the story shows girls dancing.

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.

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