First World War - Blackout cartoon postcard Featured Print

First World War - Blackout cartoon postcard

'Hoping to see more of you' - mindful of the blackout enforced in London during World War one, this couple look forward to getting a better view of each other when their paths next cross! A limited version of the total blackout experienced during World War Two had been introduced in 1915 during the First World War, when German Zeppelins began to drop bombs on their enemy. But then the lights were subdued or dimmed rather than dowsed, and only when a Zeppelin was known to be en route. Date: circa 1915

Panjdeh incident - Russian encounter with Afghan forces at Pul-i-Khishty (Brick Bridge)

Panjdeh incident - Russian encounter with Afghan forces at Pul-i-Khishty (Brick Bridge) . The 'incident' of 1885 was a diplomatic crisis between the British Empire and the Russian Empire caused by Russian expansion south-eastwards towards the Emirate of Afghanistan and the British Raj (India). After nearly completing the Russian conquest of Central Asia (Russian Turkestan) Russian forces captured an Afghan border fort. Seeing a threat to India, Britain came close to threatening war but both sides backed down and the matter was settled by diplomacy. The effect was to stop further Russian expansion in Asia, except for the Pamir Mountains and to define the north-western border of Afghanistan. Date: 1885
