    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In Maine, United States of America, we see various shots of people in canoes riding the rapids of the appropriately named Rapid River. There are two men in two boats - in the first boat is what seems to be a Canadian Mountie. The second canoe comes over the rapids and both men fall out - one clings to a rock while the other is swept along, trying to swim for his life. He reaches the side.

    In Mexico we see various shots of musicians playing music to a bull in a bullring. A crowd watches from the stand as they taunt the creature. The bull picks one of the men up on his horns, then rushes at a man with a camera (?) on a tripod. Then two people in a bull costume run alongside the bull and lock horns with it. A comic bullfighter dressed as a woman taunts the bull and swishes 'her' skirts about in front of it. When he crouches down and attempts to outstare the bull it charges and knocks him over - good!

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.
