  • Description

    No title. Underwater shots of fish being disturbed by smoke bubbling up through the water.

    Man (Joe Noble?) appears "swimming" up through the frame smoking a pipe. This is a trick effect achieved through optical printing or multiple exposure. He stands and smokes.

    "Meanwhile the Fishville Fire Brigade is perturbed." Animation begins. A fish in fireman's uniform comes out of the fire brigade depot and blows a whistle. Our man carries on smoking. The fish approaches him and says: "No smoking you'll set the seaweed on fire!" The fish jumps up and down irately.

    Note: the man could very well be Joe Noble the cartoonist.

    Was probably an item in Eve's Film Review 392 or Pathe Pictorial 392.

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.
