    Mayfair, London.

    M/S of hairstylist Raymond crouching beside a glamour girl who has baby pink hair to match her frock! In case we hadn't recognised Raymond, the narrator tells us to note his trademark gold hair scissors and tortoiseshell comb.

    C/U of the model as Raymond trims and shapes her amazing hairdo. Various shots of the style. Raymond has been inspired by two tone cars, houses and even refrigerators. He has previewed these colours in Hollywood and now he is bringing them to Britain.

    Other models with absolutely fantastic hairdos are seen. A style based on the Broadway show "My Fair Lady" has dark grey sides and silver top. Another model has a lilac "dahlia crown effect" to match the flowers in her gown.

    C/U of flowers in the lap of a model, tilt up to a truly incredible GREEN hairdo. "A Caribbean green rinse which can be washed out later" we are told - I should hope so! Phenomenal. Last model Vicki has a "Bronte" inspired do which is rather gorgeous incorporating large curl and a plait.

    Note: truly magnificent. The crazy Raymond at his very best. Models are listed in paperwork as Patricia, Jeanne, Vicky, Jean

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.
