How WWI was fought Featured Print

How WWI was fought

"As it is for most of us" World War I was a slog, described by many as "90% routine and 10% terror." Although soldiers lived with death every day, for the most part, major battles were few and far between, and sometimes it was the dread and anticipation of what was to come that was most psychologically damaging, especially for inexperienced new recruits. When an offensive did come, nobody could predict the ferocity or the outcome. Despite commanders' hopes that attacks might take place in an orderly formation, most were a chaotic scrum of noise, smoke, screams and shell fire, as summed up by Bairnsfather's loose, vigorous penmanship. Date: 1916

Manneken Pis Postcard Album - A worried man

Oh! She is swooning, what a night I shall have!. A rather worried slender man evaluates his lady's excitement at looking at a little statue and seems concerned for her 'apetite' later in the evening! Manneken Pis (Dutch for 'little pee man'), also known in French as the 'petit Julien', is a very famous Brussels landmark. It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin. This fold-out postcard album contains humourous sketches relating to the statue and individuals reactions on viewing it!
