  • Description

    Titles missing - writing on leader reads : "Gar Wood & Kaye Don motor boat race."

    Gar Wood's motor speed boat races across the water.

    Kaye Don's speed boat 'Miss England II" speeds across the water.

    Gar Wood's boat comes close to the dock.

    "Miss England II" speed further away.

    High angle shot of crowds on dock.

    "Miss England II" at speed - she appears a little shaky.

    Engineers and mechanics look down at damage to "Miss England II" . The body work has been quite badly torn. Shot of the back of the boat which also shows signs of significant damage.

    C/U Kaye Don. He is talking to camera.

    C/U Gar Wood also talking to camera.

    Sound Track Missing.

    (It is very unclear if this item belongs in this issue. Kaye Don had already taken delivery of "Miss England III by this stage of the year and already begun trials - no wonder he needed a new boat looking at the damage to this one.)

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.
