  • Description

    Various shots show a parade of police cadets being inspected by Sir Norman Skelhorn at Hendon Police Training School's Passing Out Parade.

    At the Ashford Police Training College, a road accident is reconstructed for instruction purposes; cadets learn how to deal with the situation and take statements. Several shots at the colleges at Hendon and Ashford show cadets sitting around on a campus terrace, reading (not in uniform); selecting books in a library; taking lessons in a classroom; using surveying equipment.

    At Ashford, various shots show the young men in a sports hall; using a trampoline, practising judo and playing basketball. At Lippitts Hill Camp in Essex, we see the cadets dressed in army-type clothes, climbing and swinging on ropes; sliding down ropes from a tree to the ground (looks rather uncomfortable); leaping over muddy water; climbing walls and other assault course activities.

    The cadets stand in a field to watch a demonstration by three police dog handlers; one of the dogs chases after a man as if he is a criminal, with dramatic snarling dog sounds on the soundtrack.

    C/U of a hand dialling 999 on a telephone (Ealing exchange); a police car with flashing light comes out of a police station and zooms around a corner; a police cadet (he looks about 12!) sits in the back seat. The police car speeds along roads; a lollipop man lets pedestrians cross a zebra crossing when the car has zipped by. The car stops at the gates of a deserted factory; the police chase an intruder with an Alsatian police dog; they corner him at the far gate.

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.

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