  • Army Innovations (1965)

    🎬British Pathé – Presentation of weird and 'useful' inventions of the British Army. Military Engineering Establishment in Christchurch, Hampshire L/S of a line of vehicles crossing the river on a big float. Float reaching the shore, arriving at bank. M/S of two officers observing the operation. "Just once every four years this secret establishment (Military Engineering Experimental Establishment) opens its door to show us some of the weird and wonderful contraptions its back-room boys have contrived." There follows a succession of shots of these "weird and wonderful" inventions demonstrating their 'excellence'. Truck rolling out metal stripe from the back, around the front and under the wheels to make a 'road' - device against mud. However, the metal strip rolled around the front of the truck prevents the driver from seeing where he is going! C/U shots of the two strange looking tractor-like vehicles following the 'road making truck' and a yellow tractor getting out of the water. No demonstration of their use - they are for display only. Beach landing vehicle is a large and complicated looking amphibian construction which carries two boats (one at each side of the vehicle) and has something that resembles a bulldozer mouth in the middle - a beach landing bulldozer! Large balloon placed into the shell hole enables the tank to drive over it - simple! Trench making machine works on the principe of coal-cutting equipment. 'Instant trenching demonstration' looks amazing. Bulldozer (or any heavy equipment) can be dropped from the air thanks to the use of air cushions placed underneath the platform on which the bulldozer sits.

  • Army Of Peace (1933)

    🎬British Pathé – Young unemployed men live and work at the Grith Fyrd camp in the New Forest. Titles read: "The army of peace. Grith Fyrd, it is called, and the camp consists of many who are unemployed, but by no means unoccupied." On the bank of the River Avon near Fordingbridge we see various shots of the Grith Fyrd or Peace Army Camp, where "young men of all classes can develop themselves both physically and mentally". Bare chested young men cut down a tree and carry it back to the camp. Several shots of the men working in the camp, making concrete buildings, weaving rushes for shelter mats, weaving cloth for their clothes, doing woodwork and making sandals, milking goats, taking classes from other camp members, cooking, bathing in the river, drying themselves and running back for dinner. Commentator says this is neither a vocational training centre nor a holiday camp and adds "One of the main objects is to make constructive use of leisure, whether enforced or otherwise". Good footage of camp for unemployed young men during the Depression. Note: there is a letter on file from the Organising Secretary of the Camps
