Douglas Dakota picking up a glider, Normandy; Second World W Featured Print

Douglas Dakota picking up a glider, Normandy; Second World W

Illustration showing a Douglas Dakota, C-47 Skytrain, swooping down with a hook trailing to pick up a Waco glider, Normandy, France, 1944. This system of launching and towing a glider was designed as a time-saving measure, so that tug aircraft, such as the Dakota, could pick up gliders without landing. This illustration was made by the Illustrated London News special artist, C.E. Turner using information supplied by the US Ninth Air Force.

Fancy dress costumes at the Artists' Fancy Dress ball Featured Print

Fancy dress costumes at the Artists' Fancy Dress ball

The Bystander magazine passes comment on the various fancy dress costumes seen at the Artists' Fancy Dress ball at the Albert Hall in February 1911. Rather critically, they show three outfits in the top row (Miss D. Barker as Isabel in Measure for Measure, Mr and Mrs Burne as a Franz Hals picture and Mr Carter as a Pharoah) as 'well conceived'. The three in the bottom row (Mr Basil Watt as Walter Raleigh, Lady Constance Stewart-Richardson as a cupid and Captain Jameson as Kaiser Wilhelm II) are 'not well conceived' although frankly, I think the chap as the Kaiser has done a pretty good job. Date: 1913
