    Unused / unissued material - location and dates unclear or unknown.

    Greece.

    VS Greek Princess (possibly Princess Frederika) visiting hospital wards and talking with wounded soldiers. She brings small packages for the wounded. Nurses care for some of the wounded soldiers. We see the soldiers wandering in hospital grounds. Good shots of Princess talking to wounded.

    MS small crowd reading war bulletins stuck in shop window.

    VS Crowds of Greeks demonstrating by marching through streets carrying portraits and banners and by waving Greek, American and British flags., also shots of Greek (nationalist) troops driving in old over-crowded lorries through the street.

    (Mute Lav.)

    Cataloguer's Note: Not clear to me what is happening in the second half of this story - it looks like some kind of liberation or victory parade - MD.

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.
