  • Description

    Titles read: 'London - Garden Fete in aid of wounded soldiers.'

    Shot of recuperating soldiers coming around side of building; some with casts or canes. Some men are in the usual recuperating uniform (medium-coloured trousers and jackets with white lapels), others are in military uniform. Side view of a band sitting on chairs outdoors; playing music. Fade into shot of young women on the grass, dancing waltz in clown-like costumes; with huge ruffs.

    Next a silly funny contest of RAF man trying to balance walking across a pole or log; carrying a little parasol - he loses his balance and starts spinning around waving the parasol; as crowd laughs. Another man tries; and falls over.

    Then a little girl dressed in Scottish kilt; etc. seems to have won something; she poses triumphantly with arms raised; in front of a cheering and waving crowd of other kids; clowns; wounded soldiers etc. and flags hanging above everyone.

    Celebration. World War One.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.
