  • Description

    Zuyder Zee floods; in the Netherlands.

    (Dutch inlet from North Sea; later dammed and made into lake; the IJsellmeer.) Quality not great; but still interesting looking footage; bright & high-contrast tracking shot across the water; going past broken up stone dyke with 5 men standing on end; then open area of water with large rocks sticking up in distance; more segments of the dyke standing.

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.
