Holding up the R101 Featured Print

Holding up the R101

A member of the WAAC - the Women's Army Auxiliary Corp - 'holds up' the R101 Airship, riding at her home mast at Cardington, Bedford. R101 was a British rigid airship completed in 1929 as part of the Imperial Airship Scheme. After initial flights and two enlargements to the lifting volume, it crashed on October 5, 1930, in France, during its maiden overseas voyage, killing 48 people. Amongst airship accidents of the 1930s, the loss of life surpassed the Hindenburg disaster of 1937, and was second only to that of the USS Akron crash of 1933. The demise of R101 effectively ended British employment of rigid airships.

Mail arriving by boat in Calshot Harbour, Tristan de Cunha Featured Print

Mail arriving by boat in Calshot Harbour, Tristan de Cunha

Tristan de Cunha - Mail arriving by boat in Calshot Harbour. Tristan da Cunha, colloquially Tristan, is a remote group of volcanic islands in the south Atlantic Ocean which includes Gough Island. On 10 October 1961, the eruption of Queen Mary's Peak forced the evacuation of the entire population of 264 individuals. Evacuees sailed to uninhabited Nightingale Island, where they were picked up by a Dutch passenger ship that took them via Cape Town to Britain. The islanders arrived in the UK to a big reception and were settled in an old Royal Air Force camp near Calshot, Hampshire - which subsequently gave its name to the harbour depicted here (following the islander's return). Date: circa late 1960s
