    Titles read: "Fashion goes to the head!"

    London.

    Various shots of women modelling "fantasy head-dresses" from the Hairdressing Fair at Olympia. All the headpieces are made out of hair - yeuch!

    First we see a huge butterfly resting on top of a wig. Another woman wears a wig with a hair hat on the top - this one is apparently green! We see a woman wearing the 'Princess Marina' hairstyle. Then a huge ostrich feather fan worn on the head - the feathers are actually hair mounted on a wire frame. The next woman wears a trellis on her head, complete with flowers, spider and web. The last head-dress is covered with peacock feathers spread out like a tail - all made from hair again.

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.
