five pathé-tic British vicars

I’ve been chuckling away at some archive footage from the British Pathé archive involving vicars and church. (You need to click on the pictures to get to the video archives). If you just watch one I’d recommend the milkman vicar which reminded me of the classic Father Ted episode when Dougal is on a booby trapped milk float.

A cunning trick to get people to come to church. Have it on a double decker bus…

I find the image of ex-prisoners drying their washing on a washing line inside a church beautiful…

Youth work in the late 50’s. Check out the hair..

This is my favourite. The vicar’s wife looks like she is really enjoying filling in for the village milkman..

A wrestling vicar. Who is also a wrestling referee.
