  • Description

    Aldershot, Hampshire.

    Underwater shots at the Aldershot Lido show frogmen sawing wood and hammering stakes, to prepare the pool for a game of underwater hockey. Men on the side of the pool put on diving equipment and snorkels. The referee tosses a coin and the players all jump into the pool, watched by a rather bored looking small crowd.

    The ref blows a whistle and there follows a lengthy underwater sequence where it is quite hard to see what is going on; the men seem to be pushing a puck along with little paddles. High angle shots show the frogmen frantically scrabbling about in the water - not that interesting for spectators, though a few look more animated now.

    Note: the underwater sequences are quite scratched.

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.
