L/S of house - the occupiers have removed to blackout curtains before going to sleep so we can see lights being switched on in every part of the house!

    M/S looking through French windows. A man opens the curtains and switches on the light. We see him doing his morning exercises. M/S of open back door, light floods out of it. Some one is sweeping dust out onto the step. M/S looking through window of man having shave with light on. M/S looking through kitchen window of a woman cooking breakfast.

    Night shots of bicycle and van driving down street. Because the cyclist is not wearing any reflective gear the van has to swerve to avoid it. M/S, taken from nearby rooftop, of painters working in office block. They are painting with the lights on and no blackout curtains.

    M/S of suburban house. M/S of man putting up blackout curtains. He stops midway through what he is doing, switches on a lamp and lights a cigarette.

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.
