    Full titles read: "NEW SOUTH WALE POLICE CARNIVAL"

    L/S's of the Australian Police Force on parade. Several shots of mounted policemen followed by uniformed men marching. L/S's of men dressed like toy soldiers and walking strangely in an open air arena. L/S's of small model artillery pieces being fired at the men and they start to fall down (like toy soldiers). The clouds applaud the performance. L/S's of a mock up of the changing of the guard, only the guards are women and ride wooden horses on wheels ! (It's quite comical).

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.
