  • Description

    Llandudno, Wales.

    The 39th Interflora conference allows florists from all over the world to swop ideas on flower arrangements.

    A bride receives a floral bouquet and a bridesmaid holds a ball shaped posy. Parisienne Colette Baumann uses yellow coloured carnations and chrysanthemums, and there are pink and red dahlias, orchids roses and freesias in a huge pink heart shaped floral valentine. A representative from behind the Iron Curtain uses wheat. Ben Hubbard from the USA, makes a bird of paradise out of a flower in bloom. The audience, mainly women are seen clapping. There are shots of various floral displays, finishing with one shaped like a cake.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.

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.
