  • Description

    Titles read: "LONDON SCOTTISH entertain the children."

    London.

    Several shots of rows of children at a New Year's party given by the London Scottish Army Regiment. the children sit at long tables in a hall while soldiers march through the hall playing bagpipes. Nice sequence with natural sound shows a soldier giving lots of pieces of cake to a young giggling boy at the table.

    When the tables have been cleared, balloons fall from the ceiling onto the children, then some of the soldiers dress up as Father Christmas and clowns and throw presents to the crowds of children. Brief shots of soldiers dancing about the hall with the children; some soldiers carry children on their shoulders.

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.
