British troops resting after six days' fighting, 1944 Featured Print

British troops resting after six days' fighting, 1944

A group of jocular British soldiers take a rest after six days' spent attacking the strongly defended German positions on Mounts Camino and Maggiore, fighting through thick mud and unceasing rain. The Illustrated London News, who printed this picture in January 1944, compared the Second World War Tommy to the previous generation who fought in the Great War and remarks in the caption on the similarities of character - with an irrepressible spirit he is prone to cynicism and grumbling but is nevertheless an indominatable fighter. Date: 1944

Derby recruiters sleeping at a recruiting office, WW1 Featured Print

Derby recruiters sleeping at a recruiting office, WW1

Worn out Derby recruiters snatching some sleep at their offices after a busy night dealing with the final rush of recruits under Lord Derby's group system. Lord Derby, Director General of Recruiting in 1916 introduced the Derby scheme which encouraged men from the same offices or factories to join up together to form 'pals' battalions. The scheme also divided men up into single and married and offered a war pension to those with dependents. As the prospect of conscription loomed, and with December 15th 1915 as the deadline for volunteering or attesting, recruitment offices found it difficult to cope with the crowds. Date: 1915
