    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    Germany.

    Hot air balloons are inflated in a field. Men, some in Nazi uniforms, help to pull out balloon envelope before inflation. Balloons are inflated with hot air, ballast is added. Good shots of the balloons and baskets slowly rising into the air. Views of the crowd looking on. Shots of several balloons taking off. They are presumably taking part in a Gordon Bennett sponsored hot air balloon race.

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.
