    No titles.

    London - probably filmed in Pathe Studios.

    Various shots of everyday objects seen in ultra close-up that we have to guess what they are. We then see them in a more familiar M/S.

    Objects are: a sponge, grains of rice, 5 shilling postal order, a gramophone record, toothpaste, matches, and a cinema screen covered with tiny perforations to let the sound come through.

    *NB: Idential version of this story exists on PM3398, along with the rest of NP 378.

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.
