    Item title reads: "The Great Pilgrimage of love. Mothers from every part of Britain tread the path… where once their dear ones trod - to the Menin Gate.. to place their tributes on the gate of a million memories."

    Ypres, Belgium

    Large procession of men and women make their way along a street beside buildings with flags at half mast. C/U of the arch with the names of fallen soldiers inscribed on a wall behind. People file slowly up the steps, and women lay flowers. Further shot of the inscriptions. A man and women tie messages to wreaths, and a woman turns to camera wearing medals.

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.
