    Titles read: "The Four-year old - (and what a four-year old!)".

    Australia.

    Various shots of a four-year-old boy called Tommy posing beside the trophy cups he has won for horse riding and racing. We then see him posing on a horse (Tommy looks tiny up there), then cantering and galloping around a field. When he gets off his horse, he gets his foot tangled up in the reins. The horse is seen drinking water from a hose. M/S of Tommy sitting on the horse; he tips his hat to us.

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.
