  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Members of the Women's League of Health and Beauty perform some of their exercises outdoors in the open air. It is a kind of synchronised PT display. Some of the women also perform more dance type manoeuvres in long diaphanous dress. Yet another group perform an odd little dance numbers. A man speaks to the crowd. Shots of the women marching past (they are singing - sadly the item is mute) A woman sings a song on an outdoor stage (her dress has the initials 'EF' on it) she might be calling out instructions. Various shots of the crowd - several have umbrellas to protect them against the rain. Two children shelter under a brolly. Shots of the band who are providing music to keep everyone in time.

    N.B. Although founded as part of the 1930s health fad they are still going strong today - ask Sarah Lee.

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!
