  • The area in the video is the "Isthmus" of Corinth and not Nauplia. The wreck lies at the eastern entrance of the canal. The canal and the bridge blown up by the German army during the retreat and the repairs was done by the end of the war by American and Greek engineers. There are some good photos of the canal here: http://www.lifo.gr/team/sansimera/40165

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.
