    OLDER WORKERS ARE STILL WANTED IN THEIR JOBS - TRAILER

    People sitting around the table singing 'Happy Birthday' to elderly man with cake in front of him. Man blows the candles, they applaud. Close up shot of the birthday man's face. He is 65 and does not have to work more - voiceover says. Follows succession of shots from steel factory - presumably the man worked there. 'Internal monologue' suggests that country still needs skilled workers and urges the man not to retire. Voice off screen says - let's drink for happy retirement. The man rises from chair and reacts - he will not retire. End title reads "Older workers are still wanted in their jobs".

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.
