German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens - WW1

A huge German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens on 8th August 1918 became a source of some Allied controversy. The Australian 31st Battalion effected its capture, but, in the wake of the continued Allied advance, the gun received a large painted inscription stating that the gun had been captured by the British 4th Army (see picture) of which the ANZAC Corps was a component. A thorough investigation was made of the circumstances of the gun's capture - an insightful example of the contested nature of war material involving notions of identity and ownership - before it was finally transported to Australia for public display (AWM Archive). The gun was originally intended for naval use, mounted in the battleship SMS Hessen. Date: 1918

View of the monument to the Russian writer Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (1809-1852

View of the monument to the Russian writer Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (1809-1852) in Moscow, Russia. It was erected in 1909 on Prechistensky Boulevard, but its style proved to be controversial because of its rather negative body language, and in the 1950s it was moved to Nikitsky Boulevard, and installed outside the house where Gogol lived. On the pedestal can be seen a bas relief of characters from Gogol's stories. Date: circa 1909
