  • Description

    Track missing for this whole issue.

    Full titles read: "Meet the Juggling demons - and some of their best clubs -".

    Various shots show two men dressed as devils, wearing hats with devil horns on them, black moustaches, eyebrows and tiny beards, and demon-like shorts, tops and tights. They do several juggling tricks with silver clubs, first with four, then six - amazing! For the finish, one of the demons tosses numerous clubs to the other until he has his hands full; he catches the last one between his legs.

    It looks quite bizarre without sound.

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.
