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

    Spain. (Possibly near Portuguese border)

    Sequence of quick shots from areas in Spanish Civil War. Views over rooftops of a town, signs of damage on some roofs. Broken window with slogan 'Viva Espana' painted on it. (Nationalist slogan). Dead body lies by the roadside. Crashed or shot down fighter plane in town centre. A crowd have gathered around it. Crashed or shot up cars. People sit outside building, possibly wounded.

    Long row of corpses. Pan along row of charred / burnt bodies. Shots of people - mainly in uniform - shot by firing squad. The wall behind them is marked with bullet holes. Several CUs of corpses faces. Some shots repeat.

    Troops walk past camera. More shots of bodies by roadside. Shots of shot down plane. Troops and children wave at the camera (I think they are Nationalists).

    Shots of damage to Church tower and building. Pan across rooftops. More damaged buildings and cars.

    Yet more dead bodies, these ones are in civilian clothes. More shots of bomb / artillery damage. A shell lies in the midst of the rubble. More shots of the dead civilians.

    Dead body lies in midst of rubble - possibly in a burnt church. More views around village. Troops gathered around building. Some of them seem to be looking through captured weapons.

    N.B. It is not clear without voiceover which side people are fighting for. The shots of the dead bodies are very graphic and need to be treated with some care. Original material for 36/71 'Troubled Spain'. Dupe in UN 51 R.

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.
