    Titles read: "MALTA, CG".

    Malta.

    General view of bombed buildings in Valetta. M/S newspaper leaving the bomb-damaged printing works. M/Ss of soldiers raising the air raid flag warning and turning a hand siren. Various shots taken during a daylight air attack by the Germans. Anti-aircraft guns in action and bombs falling around the island. Short shot of people inside one of the underground shelters. When the raid is over a sailor brings down the red warning flag from the palace roof and people come up from shelters to continue normal life - several people make the sign of the cross. A stretcher case from the raid is carried off. Businesses get back to normal; two workers put flowers outside their bomb-damaged shop.

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.
