    Interviews with American winners of Irish Derby sweepstakes.

    Various shots of nurses picking out winners names out of tombola drums. £30,000 of the winnings will go to the American winners.

    C/U of Mrs. Gazella Copp (Kopp?) of Brooklyn (New York City, United States of America, USA). Mrs. C . explains how she picked her horses from a dream and how she will definitely buy more tickets. She speaks with a strong German accent.

    C/U of Mr. Sam Small of New York. His chubby, young son Donald sits on his knee. Sam asks in a very wooden manner what Donald would like to buy with the money. Donald answers (shouting) that he wants a pony, a search light and a two wheel bicycle. The little boy keeps repeating himself and this makes his father laugh. M/S of Small family; Sam, Donald, Ann (Sam's wife) and an elderly woman (grandmother) sitting on sofa. Sam asks Ann how she feels. She says she could scream ... and she then does! They all giggle.

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.
