British Pathe News at War

Recently British Pathé News has released 85,000 of its newsreels onto YouTube including a number of military ones which they have put up in the War Archives section. Some of them have to be taken with a pinch of salt (I'm somewhat sceptical that British troops would walk upright WWI style across a jungle clearing into the face of Japanese sniper fire), but there is some really interesting stuff to be found, even in the clearly propaganda footage.
