    Titles read: "NEWS BRIEFS".

    Various locations of events.

    In Gibraltar we see several shots of Vice Admiral Sir Frederick Collins receiving the keys of the island. He is now Governor of Gibraltar, taking over from General Lord Gort. The Vice Admiral starts a little tour of the Rock's defences accompanied by foreign military leaders.

    At an unidentified location, we see Rear Admiral Auboyneau board a ship of the Free French Navy as we hear he is the new Naval Chief, taking over from Admiral Muselier. We see him shaking hands with naval officers and inspecting sailors on deck.

    In Northern Ireland, we see General Brooke, Chief of the Imperial General Staff, arriving by plane at an airfield. He meets General Hartle, Chief of the American Expeditionary Force and General Franklin, Commander-in-Chief of British Forces in Northern Ireland. General Brooke then sees American soldiers at their duties. The General speaks into a large radio / walkie talkie, then inspects troops at the Radio Communication Post before being driven off in his jeep.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
Franz Reichelt
On 18 September 2014 Scotland goes to the polls to vote on independence. To mark this and in celebration of all things Scottish, British Pathé has created Scotland: The Heritage Collection.
