  • Description

    Prince of Wales at rally. Location of events unknown.

    Royalty. 'Prince of Wales - Cheered by Workers & Children'. This is the Prince who became King Edward VIII for a short time in 1936; and then abdicated because of his marriage to a divorced American woman. He is about 23 years old in this film; in which he attends and speaks at some function with military officers; officials; and a lot of children present. He's the one who looks like a kid himself. Backs of group of men in uniform including Prince as they stand at a gate; also a guy in a white wig. A group of men in deer stalker hats and robes coming through gates.

    Shot looking up at balcony on top of roof; some people can be vaguely seen up there; Prince of Wales is probably speaking. Some soldiers with rifles stand at the right; while some others step to left in a group; talking; the Prince of Wales is the one on the far left; one of the other men salutes him and he returns the salute; then walks off to left; crowd of children in BG behind barrier. Another shot looking up at balcony. The Prince along with guy in medallion; officers and wigged guy walk through garage - very dim. A sign for 'Wood Milne Rubber Wheels' on wall. Prince and others walk toward car.

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!

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.
