British Sentry keeping watch on Nijmegen Bridge; Second Worl

Photograph showing aan Irish Guardsman keeping watch on the Bridge at Nijmegen, September 1944. On 17th September 1944 Operation 'Market Garden' was put into action; a bold plan devised by Field-Marshal Montgomery to drop thousands of airborne troops into Holland to capture an invasion route into Germany. The British First Airborne, American 81st and 101st Divisions took part in the plan, which was ultimately unsuccessful. This photographed was staged (for the Illustrated London News) and the soldier is James Lawler of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards. The sentry box was previously manned by Germans and a picture of the Fuhrer can be seen, still pinned to the side of the wooden position. Apparently the ILN correspondent had to be encouraged to make the high ascent to the box by ladder as he was scared of heights!!

The Whip Hand, by Bairnsfather

'The Whip Hand' 'Private Mulligatawny (the Australian stock-whip wonder) frequently causes a lot of bother in the enemy's trenches' Bruce Bairnsfather's "stock whip" cartoon sums up the practical, self-reliant, rough and ready boldness associated with the Aussies. Most Anzac troops were deployed in the Middle East, and of course at Gallipoli, before being sent to the Western Front in 1916 (the time of this picture). the Australians were no walkover, and many felt bitterly let down by what they considered the badly judged British command and the resultant poorly organised British troops. One Australian mining engineer railed against the "British staff, British methods and British bungling". the Australians and New Zealanders proportionately suffered some of the highest losses of the war, and the image of the Anzac soldier remains one of the most iconic. Date: 1916
