    Titles read: 'Famous FOOTBALL TEAMS IN TRAINING - NO. 3 THE ARSENAL'.

    Highbury, London.

    M/S of the Arsenal football team running out of the tunnel and onto a football pitch. A large crowd watches as Arsenal, in white shirts, play against an unidentified team.

    Various shots of the team in training at their home ground of Highbury. They all wear shorts and chunky roll-neck jumpers. The men do stretching exercises. We see Hume, Alec James, manager George Allison, trainer Tom Whittaker, Bastin (looking through a movie camera).

    Goalkeeper Wilson was away when Pathe visited, so we see shots of him saving goals in a match.

    The footballers are seen in a game they use for practice called 'football tennis' where they stand on a tennis pitch and either head or kick the ball from one to another. Then we see the men in a practice game on the pitch.

    More library footage of Arsenal in a match as we see them score a goal.

    There were 3 'seasons' of these 'Football Teams / Clubs in Training' in the Pathe Sound Pictorials - this is an item from the third season.

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.
