  • "shaking hands w/ man (priest; not in black and facing away from cam" - that's Herbert Ryle, the then Dean of Westminster.

    Narrowing down the clip's current date range of 1918-1929........... the tomb of the Unknown Warrior wasn't unveiled until 1920. Secondly, Herbert Ryle left Westminster through ill health in late 1924. The date range can therefore safely be amended to 1920-24.

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.

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.
