  • Description

    Full title reads: "OYSTERS ARRIVE - Early catches are brought in from beds at Whitstable."

    Whitstable, Kent.

    Fishing boat with several beauties onboard waving to camera - very pretty girls. Men throw their nets into the water. Men, helped by the girls, pull the nets onboard the boat. Small net is filled with oysters.

    Girls sitting around the pile of oysters - probably sorting them. Girls' legs are on display.

    A man gives an oyster to a woman who picks something from it - it seems to be a pearl - or a little stone. She puts it on palm of her hand and inspects it.

    Girls tasting oysters - legs on display again. A nice close up shot of an oyster being opened revealing tasty flash.

    Men unloading the ship at the beach, children run around them. Close up shot of a basket filled with oysters.

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.
