  • Description

    German prisoners eating while walking. Location of events unknown.

    World War One. A long line of German prisoners (POWs) march past camera to right; eating as they walk -- they all have big hunks of bread -- nearly every man is chewing a big mouthful! Some guys have some of their bread stuck into their coat. One man is drinking out of a canteen or cup. Don't get a very good look at guards. At end the prisoners come to a stop and stand looking at camera; some of them smile.

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.
