Cierva W.11 Air Horse VZ724

Cierva W.11 Air Horse VZ724 / G-ALCV (msn W.11/1 ), which first flew on 7 December 1948 as G-ALCV, was marked with the Air Ministry serial VZ274. G-ALCV / VZ274 crashed on 13 June 1950, claiming the lives of Alan Marsh (chief test pilot) John Jeep Cable, (Ministry of Supply test pilot), and Joseph K. Unsworth (flight engineer). The cause of the crash was due to fatigue failure of a swash-plate carrier driving link in the front rotor hub. The second Air Horse, WA555 / G-ALCW, completed around 20 hours flying before the plug was pulled and was scrapped in 1951. Date: circa 1950

Interior view of the Norris Green British Restaurant, Liverpool during the Second World War Featured Print

Interior view of the Norris Green British Restaurant, Liverpool during the Second World War

Interior view of the Norris Green British Restaurant, Liverpool during the Second World War. British Restaurants were communal restaurants during the Second World War providing a cooked meal, with dessert and a cup of tea or coffee, for around the cost of 1s.2d. While operated on a canteen basis, meals were eaten at a table and allowed people, including war workers and those who had bombed out of their homes or might have difficulty cooking or making a packed lunch at home, a nutritious and affordable meal, which could be eaten in addition to wartime rations. Many restaurants were decorated inside with murals as a way to make the surroundings pleasant, but Norris Green looks rather plain and functional. Date: 1946
