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!!

UK General Election 1906 - Winners as the 'True Blue'

The General Election - Comic postcard showing the delight amid the working class at the landslide defeat for the Conservative Party and their Liberal Unionist allies, the primary reason given by historians as the party's weakness after its split over the issue of free trade (Joseph Chamberlain had resigned from government in September 1903 in order to campaign for Tariff Reform, which would allow 'preferential tariffs'). Many working-class people saw this as a threat to the price of food, hence the debate was nicknamed 'Big Loaf, Little Loaf'. Date: 1906

British and American troops stacking dynamite on the Nijmege

Photograph showing British and American troops stacking dynamite charges against the railing of Nijmegen Bridge, September 1944. As the Allied army advanced towards Nijmegen, the German general defending the town put 10, 000 lbs of explosives on the bridge, to blow it up if the Allies managed to overcome his men. In the event, the Germans were unable to destroy the bridge; hence this photograph of the British and American troops collecting all the dynamite and moving it elsewhere. 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.
