  • Description

    Item title reads: " Vive l'entente cordiale. State visit of M. Gaston Doumergue - President of the French Republic. Honoured at Oxford University with D.C.L Degree."

    Dover, London and Oxford

    M. Gaston Doumergue walks down the ship's gangplank, with his hat in hand, followed by a guards officer, wearing a busby. They step onto the quayside and walk along with a naval officer, wearing a two cornered hat. They inspect the rows of waiting sailors. M. Doumergue and the guard officer walk along the station platform alongside the Pullman train carriages to a group of waiting officials and a brass band. He reads a speech, and is introduced to more officers wearing full military insignia., feathered hats, medals and sashes. M. Doumergue and the entourage leave the station walking past ranks of guardsmen, with hundreds of French and British flags hanging down, fluttering, above them. He is driven away in an open horse drawn carriage with footmen. The carriage moves away and is followed by ranks of mounted household cavalry. The carriage passes through gates. He arrives at the Cenotaph in a motorcade watched by crowds.
    Intertitle reads: 'At the Cenotaph... honoured.' He lays a wreath at the memorial, steps back and bows his head. At Oxford, he is seen emerging through an archway of one of the university buildings, wearing cap and gown. He is followed by dons wearing the same. They make their way, in a long line, filing slowly past college buildings, and pass through a gateway.

    Note: Great shot of Oxford dons in full cap and gown.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
