    Titles read: "Something for the LADIES! Feminine Pictorialities No. 16 - Mannequins & Modes".

    London.

    Elegant fashion models parade about a stage. From the wings we see a model coming offstage and unbuttoning her coat then rushing off to make her next change (she has just her underwear on beneath the coat). Good shots of mannequins backstage getting into their next outfits. Another model comes offstage looking chic and serene, then makes a face and takes off her shoes.

    On the stage we see models wearing floral evening frocks. One woman wears a large corsage of three flowers. Most of the dresses have ruffles on the bodice and skirt. Another woman wears a white fur coat with a large collar. Final outfit seen is a wedding dress; the 'bride' is followed by two bridesmaids.

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.
