Mortar, 2 In Mk Vii* Airborne

Mk VII* 2 in mortar. Used by airborne forces during World War Two, 1945 (c). The 2 inch Mortar, introduced into service in 1938, was a light weapon designed for close support fire for infantry. Originally equipped with a base-plate and sights, it was modified during the war to a very simplified form. This model, produced in 1944 for use by airborne troops, is simply a metal tube with the sighting reduced to a white line on the barrel. The High Explosive or Smoke bomb is dropped down the barrel and fired by a simple lever. The maximum range is 430 metres (500 yards). Date: circa 1945

Early woman police sergeant, London

An early (possibly the first) woman police sergeant in London, wearing the Stanley Uniform, introduced in 1919. The tunic was single-breasted with six metal buttons down the front and a snake clasp belt. The skirt was mid-calf length. Black woollen stockings were worn, and boots with a one-inch heel. The helmet was made of cork and hard felt. Although Harrods fitted and made the uniform, the material was coarse and uncomfortable. In 1926 changes were made to make it more comfortable and practical. Date: circa 1920s
