    Full title reads: "GARGLING PARADE AT WELLINGTON BARRACKS".

    London.

    Solders scooping flu fluid from buckets in cups and moving away. Troops lined up at the Wellington Barracks grounds with cups in their hands - they are wearing odd clothing, look like pyjamas. They sip the fluid on order and start gargling. More shots of the troops gargling flu fluid. Several close up shots, funny noise - bizarre!

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

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