    Full titles read: "The Old Order Changeth! - Khartum [sic] and Omdurman... are now linked by new Bridge and electric trams over the White Nile... and both all British!"

    Sudan.

    M/S of a lady in a large hat being handed a knife which she uses to cut the tape for the opening of a new bridge between Khartoum and Omdurman over the White Nile river. A man in a pith helmet stands beside her, various other dignitaries stand about and a small crowd watches from behind a barrier.

    Brief shots of two white men and one Sudanese (in traditional robes) making speeches on the bridge.

    Note: the title card says Egypt but story was shot in Sudan.

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.
