The Zulu war. Scene of the Battle of Isandula (Isandhlwana)

After the Battle of Isadhlwana. A description by Lieutenant Crealock reads, 'Day waned and the night hung over the hill, when we reached the last ridge, beyond which lay what had been our camp. To the hill on the left we sent off Major Black and three companies of the 24th to seize it. The neck between it and the hill we must gain at all hazards. In silence we marched down into the gloom below, where lay, shrouded by a merciful pall, the horrors of the past day'. 1, 700 British soldiers had perished in the bloodiest battle of the Zulu war, on 22nd January 1879.

Starlight bent by the Sun's Attraction: The Einstein Theory

This diagram drawn by W. B. Robinson illustrates Professor Einstein's Theory that light is subject to gravitation. The drawing was based on British observers' photographs at the eclipse of the sun on the 28-29th May 1919. Photographs of stars were taken during the total eclipse, which were then compared to other plates of the same region taken when the sun was not in the neighbourhood. Comparing the two plates, the stars on the eclipse plates seemed to be pushed outwards, thus starlight was found to be bent by the sun's attraction. Dr A. C. Crommelin, a British observer working on the project, wrote that 'straight lines in Einstein's space cannot exist; they are parts of gigantic curves.'

The Dogger Bank Incident or Russian Outrage

The Dogger Bank Incident (or 'Russian Outrage') occured on the 22nd October 1904, when the Russian Fleet (sailing to reinforce the 1st Pacific Squadron stationed at Port Arthur during the Russo-Japanese War) mistook 48 harmless British trawlers at Dogger Bank for an Imperial Japanese Navy force, leading to the loss of life of three British seamen, two by drowning and one from shock a year later. This card shows the damaged trawler 'Moulmein' and its crew, lucky to have returned to port alive. Date: 1904
