  • Description

    Item title reads - The People's Farewell to Will Crooks. Labour's last tribute to a popular Leader.

    The cortege makes its way down the street, many policemen walk beside it and crowds line the street on either side. We see a carriage full of wreaths and flowers. Mourners walk along and policemen move the crowds out of the way to let the procession through.

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.
