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

Dalian, China - The Harbour and Railway Depot

Dalian, China - The Harbour and Railway Depot, during Japanese occupation. The settlement was occupied by the British in 1858, returned to the Chinese in the 1880s, and then occupied by Japan in 1895 during the first Sino-Japanese War. With the unconditional surrender of Japan at the end of the Second World War, Dalian, passed to the Soviet Union, who had liberated the city in advance of the end of hostilities and governed the city until 1950, when the city was presented to the Chinese Communist government without any compensation.
