  • Description

    Northolt, London.

    M/S of numerous Hurricane Fighter Planes of IIIF Squadron lined up on an airfield, with their pilots standing beside them. M/S of the RAF pilots standing in a group before the aeroplanes. Various shots of the planes taxiing and about to take off, others stand on the tarmac, ready for their take off signal. No actual shots of the Hurricanes rising into the air or the flypast of these planes.

    We then see air to air shots of three biplanes in close formation flight.

    Note: the commentary does not seem to fit the images after the first half of this story. Section showing the Hurricanes in the flypast is probably in story NEW RAF BOMBERS in same issue - see separate record for details.

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.
