    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    Views of tennis singles match between Bobby Riggs and Don Budge. Shots of the crowd, the two players coming onto court and then of the game in progress.

    CU of winner - Donald Budge. Chat between Riggs and Budge.

    N.B. I think this is a final of the US (United States of America) Open championship. Presumably from the late 1930s.

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.
