The American 'Great White Fleet' arrives in Australia

The American 'Great White Fleet' arrives in Australia - Uncle Sam meeting a Kangaroo. On 20 August 1908 well over half a million Sydneysiders turned out to watch the arrival of the Fleet. President Roosevelt had initiated the deployment of the US Atlantic Fleet to the Pacific - the first such movement of great battleships - to test his Navys professionalism, arouse popular interest in and enthusiasm for the navy, and demonstrate that the United States had arrived as a world power. Date: 1908

Mail arriving by boat in Calshot Harbour, Tristan de Cunha

Tristan de Cunha - Mail arriving by boat in Calshot Harbour. Tristan da Cunha, colloquially Tristan, is a remote group of volcanic islands in the south Atlantic Ocean which includes Gough Island. On 10 October 1961, the eruption of Queen Mary's Peak forced the evacuation of the entire population of 264 individuals. Evacuees sailed to uninhabited Nightingale Island, where they were picked up by a Dutch passenger ship that took them via Cape Town to Britain. The islanders arrived in the UK to a big reception and were settled in an old Royal Air Force camp near Calshot, Hampshire - which subsequently gave its name to the harbour depicted here (following the islander's return). Date: circa late 1960s

Welcome to the British Squadron to Japan Featured Print

Welcome to the British Squadron to Japan

Following the signing of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance of 1902 British Military contingents arrived in Japan. The Alliance was to run for five years before being renewed, was primarily directed against the potential shared menace posed, it was believed, by France and (most probably) Russia in the Far East. The alliance obligated either power to remain neutral if one or other found itself at war. However, should either power be obliged to fight a war against two or more powers, the other signatory was obliged to provide military aid. This postcard (produced by Mitsukoshi, Ltd. an international department store chain with headquarters in Tokyo, Japan) featuring a Japanese woman in a garden setting, is a celebration of the arrival of the British Squadron in July, 1906. Date: 1906
