  • Description

    Earl Haig visits steel works in Sheffield, Yorkshire. Full title reads: "EARL HAIG - pays visit to Cammell Lairds mighty steel works."

    Good M/S of Earl Haig walking towards the camera as he talks to other officials, he is wearing an overcoat and has a walking stick. He appears to be in a large outdoor yard. There are large crates and warehouses visible in the background, tram or train lines are also visible. As he passes by we see that he is followed by a small number of smartly dressed boys. They are wearing suits ties and flat caps.

    There are various other M/S of Haig, he has now taken his overcoat off to reveal full military dress. A large crowd of people who have presumably turned out to see him, are kept at bay by a line of policemen.

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.
