    Item title reads - Grandfather of our buses has been unearthed to take American and other visitors round London in old time style.

    M/S as an old horse drawn bus rides down the road followed by a modern bus. M/S as a woman climbs the steps to the upper deck and the conductor points the way, a man follows her. Behind is a sign saying 'Two trips daily', the conductor leans back and bangs the side of the bus. M/S from the horse drawn bus as it drives along. M/S of it from the road. M/S of the conductor on the back of the bus pointing to buildings and talking. M/S as it comes to a halt. M/S as it drives around a corner and we see the side which has 'London's only surviving horse bus Grandfather' on it.

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.
