  • Description

    Story about a very large family. "In these days of small incomes and smaller families, it's a rarity to meet one of 24 - from 4 months upwards."

    L/S of a group of children of various ages standing in order of descending height. The children's parents walk down the line straightening collars. "Despite his 68 years, Pa is still able to take the platoon in its daily dozen - "

    M/S of father standing in front of his children instructing them in touching their toes. We then see the family car - which is more like a school bus! The whole family files onto the bus. M/S of the children leaning out of the windows and waving.

    Was originally an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 663.

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.
