The F.A. Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, 1923

Aerial photograph of Wembley Stadium before the start of the 1923 F.A. Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. This was the first Cup Final held at the then brand-new Wembley Stadium, which had been built in 300 days at a cost of 750, 000. Before the match began a crowd of about 100, 000 (most without a ticket) stormed through the gates and into the stadium. This meant that there was approximately 200, 000 people in a ground designed for 127, 000. The photograph shows the scene as the spectators moved onto the pitch, due to the pressure of people behind them. The match started 40 minutes late and was won by Bolton 2-0"

Portrait of Ethel Le Neve

Ethel Le Neve, Dr Crippen's mistress. Dr Crippen, an American citizen, lived at 39 Hilldrop Cresent, Camden, London. He was accused of murdering his wife when she disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Crippen had told friends that his wife, Belle Elmore had died due to illness, but when first questioned by police he told them she had eloped with a lover. The police returned to Hilldrop Cresent to question Crippen a second time only to discover that he and his mistress, Miss Le Neve had disappeared. Detectives searched around the house and uncovered a headless body in the cellar. A warrant was released for Dr Crippen's arrest. The captain of the ship, the 'Montrose', on which Crippen was travelling in disguise, suspected him and his fellow passenger, Le Neve (dressed as a boy). The captain sent a wireless message to Scotland Yard, telling of his suspicions. The ship was greeted by the police and Dr Crippen and Miss Le Neve were arrested. Crippen was tried for murder and sentenced to death, whilst Miss Le Neve was acquitted and moved to America under a different name.

Carbine, Self-Loading, .30 In M1

M1 . 30 in self-loading carbine, 1942 (c); General Motors Incorporated, Inland Division. Developed as a carbine for issue to second-line troops and officers, the M1 rapidly gained popularity due to its light weight (5. 5 pounds) and 15 round magazine. Over five million were produced during World War Two and many British soldiers carried them on jungle patrols. The low-velocity bullet and short range of the carbine were no disadvantage in the close-quarter fighting in Burma. Date: circa 1942
