    No title.

    Possibly the Hague, Holland.

    M/S of a windmill, various shots as nurses hand out cakes (?) to people at a long table. M/S of two ladies dancing around a brazier. M/S of boys putting their cakes in a bag. M/S of big torch blazing. M/S of neon writing flashing across a screen at night, with torches around it. L/S of crowd waving Dutch flags. M/S of lights in the shape of two storks rocking a cradle with a crown over the top. Various shots of torches blazing and buildings lit up as people celebrate.

    Cataloguer's note: the soundtrack to this item is missing, it is not listed in the official issue sheet for 38/71 the can number may be incorrect. There is currently no paperwork to indicate what the item is about, but it appears to be a celebration of the birth of Princess Juliana's baby, and not Queen Wilhelmina as the title suggests.

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!
