WW1 - Captain Hawker takes on three Germans in the air

WW1 - Captain Lanoe George Hawker VC, DSO (1890-1916), was a British flying ace, with seven credited victories. This illustration captures an occassion on 25th July 1915, where Captain Hawker is in an unequal aerial battle with three German aeroplanes. Each German aeroplane is manned by a pilot and an observer, and armed with machine-guns. The first plane escapes, the second bursts into flames as it decends, and the third continues to attack, but is eventually driven down into the ground in British lines. Captain Hawker was rewarded the Victoria Cross, the highest award for gallantry that a British and Commonwealth serviceman can achieve. Date: 1915

China - Tien Tsin Ruins

Lantern slide of Tien Tsin Ruins. The Tientsin Massacre (Tianjin Religious Case), one of the most important 'missionary incidents' of the late Qing Dynasty, involved attacks on French Catholic priests and nuns, violent belligerence from French diplomats, and armed foreign intervention in Tientsin (Pinyin 'Tianjin') in 1870. The incident marked an end to comparative cooperation between foreign powers and the Tongzhi Manchu court, and adversely affected the ongoing renegotiation of the Treaties of Tientsin, first signed in 1858.. Part of Box 159 Pekin, slide no 6 Date: circa 1890s

Partly finished battlefield road at Flanders 1917

Second Battle of Flanders: Troops in the front are capturing positions and beating off counter attacks night and day. While the temporary lulls of infantry fighting between each thrust forward, soldiers are busy building roads with picks and shovels regardless of the weather. The formation of durable traffic of pack-horses laden with shells in saddle-pockets are seen on a road leading right up to the batteries. Date: August 1917
