  • Description

    Norwich, Norfolk.

    Various shots show Mrs Daysi Brookes (yes, that is the correct spelling!) at work painting a miniature portrait in her garden; this one is of John Heddle Nash (operatic singer). She paints on ivory, looking through a magnifying glass to paint in detail. We see C/Us of several finished portraits in frames, including those of Russian dancer Tamara Tchinarova and Benjamin Britten.

    Note: there are brief notes about Daysi on file.

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.
