  • Description

    Filmed at Pengwern (?) College in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Trained to the second, a smart young company, moving as one person." High angle shot of girls exercising in a school yard. They wear gymslips and exercise in unison. A group of the girls exercise with hula hoops, skipping ropes and juggling balls. One girl juggles whilst skipping rope - two girls turn the rope for her.

    Intertitle reads: "Budding Cinquevallis" - the girls hold plates in the air then lower them on their heads. They then place a ball or an apple on the plate, lower their arms then kneel down - an exercise of poise and balance. They then juggle, stand up again and take the plates off their heads. Quite cute and funny. The girls then stand in lines which form a star. They walk forwards and the star rotates. They then run towards the camera waving their hands in the air.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 464.

    Note: flash-frame intertitles.

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.
