    Full titles read: "Fancy Dress Parade - Many interesting and novel characters were displayed by children at the Inchicore Ball. Exclusive Pathe Pictures."

    Eire (Republic of Ireland, Southern Ireland).

    M/S of a parade of children and young teenagers in fancy dress costume walking around a field - some of them look quite comical! M/S of a little boy with playing cards tied around his middle, drinking from a bottle - a sign over his shoulder says 'The Road to Ruin'. M/S of two girls; one seems to be dressed in a Marie-Antoinette style and the other is wearing a romper suit. M/S of a little boy walking along as Charlie Chaplin, swinging his cane. M/Ss of three children dressed as the pilots who recently crossed the Atlantic in the 'Bremen' plane. It seems to be pouring with rain - they look pretty fed up!

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.
