  • Description

    Titles read: "MUNICH - PROSIT!".

    Munich, Germany.

    Various shots of the Munich Beer Festival. In a procession through the main streets we see people riding on decorated floats, a marching band and men walking along wearing ornate feathered head-dresses. Enormous beer barrels are pulled along on floats by horses.

    Several shots inside the beer garden of people drinking. Waitresses carry large tankards of beer to tables. A young boy drinks from a tankard. A man gives a small boy a drink from his tankard.

    Men in lederhosen dance embarrassingly with hula girls. More shots in the beer garden. Goose roasting on a spit. A chef takes the spit off the cooker. Several shots of men eating. A couple sit under an umbrella, laughing. Two young German men in suits stagger along with arms around each other's shoulders to stay upright.

    Prosit is German for 'cheers'. Notes on file.

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.
