    Full title reads: "France. France beats us at Football. Jubilant crowd see England defeated (5-2) - for first time - and insist on right to play us here!"

    Paris, France.

    Pan across stadium. Various shots of England V France football international. We get to see a couple of goals being scored and the happy crowd cheering.

    (N.B. Not exactly clear which issue this comes from - in reel of 31/2 but match took place in 14/05/1931. It also may have been transferred at the wrong speed.)

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.
