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

    French title reads: "Les Minstres Anglais A Rome. Aeroport d'Ostie. A leur descente d'hydravavion M MacDonald et Sir John Simon sont recus par M Mussolini".

    Rome, Italy.

    Benito Mussolini (Il Duce) waits at the airport / seaplane landing place for the arrival of a flying boat. The plane comes in to land on the water and the VIPs move forward.

    British Prime Minister James Ramsay MacDonald climbs from the plane to be greeted by Mussolini. The two leaders walk away past the Guard of Honour. Lots of photographers get in the shot as they try to get a shot of the two men.

    Flypast of flying boats. Mussolini stands by a car. Shots of cars moving away. More shots of flypast.

    N.B. Can't see Foreign Minister Sir John Simon in this piece of film. Alternative spelling for search purposes - Ramsey McDonald.

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.
