  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Whilst watching the fast-moving Ice Yachts on the Baltic shores, a Continental friend got his idea for a road yacht."

    Various shots of the "road yacht" in operation. It is rather like a sailboard but travels on land. A wheeled contraption with a large sail. A man sits in a chair in a reclining position moving the sail to the correct position to catch blasts of wind. "And all you need is the right sort of wind, blowing the right way!" High angle sho of the contraption moving along.

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.
