    A journalist has made a film of my Dunkirk Little Ship Hilfranor, which is number 6 in the film seems to include film which may have come from this film but is not shown. It shows the vessel sailing past the camera with its Bren gun manned. I think it came shortly after your excerpt ends! Is it possible to see if there is a longer film with it in as I would like to identify it and when it was shot? It seems to me that it was shot somewhere after Dunkirk. I can send you a dvd of what I have got and am happy to pay for your research and a copy of the film.

    Thank you.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

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