  • Description

    Paddington, London.

    Various footage of Bowls tournament at Paddington Sports Ground. Quite nice footage although nothing remarkable happens. None of the players are named in paperwork but at one point we see a scoreboard that names teams as Faversham and Ilford. Teams shake hands at end of match and winning team has their photograph taken.

    (BOVILL, NEG). Date: 1945.

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.
