Portrait of Ethel Le Neve Featured Print

Portrait of Ethel Le Neve

Ethel Le Neve, Dr Crippen's mistress. Dr Crippen, an American citizen, lived at 39 Hilldrop Cresent, Camden, London. He was accused of murdering his wife when she disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Crippen had told friends that his wife, Belle Elmore had died due to illness, but when first questioned by police he told them she had eloped with a lover. The police returned to Hilldrop Cresent to question Crippen a second time only to discover that he and his mistress, Miss Le Neve had disappeared. Detectives searched around the house and uncovered a headless body in the cellar. A warrant was released for Dr Crippen's arrest. The captain of the ship, the 'Montrose', on which Crippen was travelling in disguise, suspected him and his fellow passenger, Le Neve (dressed as a boy). The captain sent a wireless message to Scotland Yard, telling of his suspicions. The ship was greeted by the police and Dr Crippen and Miss Le Neve were arrested. Crippen was tried for murder and sentenced to death, whilst Miss Le Neve was acquitted and moved to America under a different name.

Greek General Trikoupis being taken to Prison at Ala Chehir Featured Print

Greek General Trikoupis being taken to Prison at Ala Chehir

Captured Greek General Trikoupis being taken to Prison at Ala Chehir (Alasehir). Nikolaos Trikoupis (18681956) was a Greek general and politician, most notable for his service in the Greco-Turkish War of 19191922, where he was taken as a prisoner of war (as shown here!). He also participated in the 1896 Summer Olympics, where he came third at the military rifle. In almost the final action of the war on 29 August, 1922 while at Karaja Hisar, also known as Ali Veran (modern Allioren, Turkey) near Kutahya, he was attacked by Turkish cavalry and surrendered along with slightly more than 5,000 men and 300 officers. Trikoupis and General Digenis (CO of II Corps) were taken to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who informed him that he had (without his knowledge!) been appointed as commander-in-chief of the Greek Army in Asia Minor, an episode highlighting the level of confusion in the Greek command! Date: 1922
