Map at the Berlin Air Safety Centre, during the Berlin Airli

Photograph showing a large wall map of Berlin and its air corridors, in the Berlin Air Safety Centre, during the airlift of 1948. This centre was used to co-ordinate air movements between the four powers occupying Berlin (USA, Great Britain, USSR, France) to ensure to efficient and safe transit of airplanes. Between April 1948 and May 1949 Stalin, leader of the USSR, imposed a land blockade on supplies from Western Europe to West Berlin. In response the British and American governments organised an enormous airlift to supply food and other essentials to the 2.5 million inhabitants of West Berlin. After a year Stalin conceded defeat and lifted the land blockade.

Celebrating the Jubilee on Board a Man of War - Extra Ration

Engraving showing the distribution of 'grog' (watered down rum) on board HMS 'Sultan' to celebrate the Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887. As can be seen, several non-commissioned officers (and perhaps the purser) are keeping an eye on proceedings to ensure the proper allocation. 'Grog' was so called as it was first issued under the order of Admiral Edward Vernon, whose nickname was 'old Grogram' after the material his cape was made of. Prior to this the Royal Navy issued straight rum to its seamen and Admiral Vernon was motivated by a desire to cut down on drunken accidents.
