Indian soldiers using a Bren gun

Photograph of Indian soldiers using a Bren gun. A gas-operated weapon, the Bren used the same . 303 ammunition as the standard British rifle, the Lee-Enfield, firing at a rate of between 480 and 540 rounds per minute (rpm), depending on the model. It was the standard light machine gun of Commonwealth armies during World War Two. The Indian Army used it widely, although the Vickers-Berthier was later adopted as well. Part of a collection of official photographs from Middle and Far East, World War Two. Collected by Maj Gen (later Lt Gen) Sir Frank Walter Messervy. Date: 1945

The Silent Minute - Big Ben, London - WW2 Featured Print

The Silent Minute - Big Ben, London - WW2

The idea of the silent minute was developed in Britain in the Second World War, initially from an idea by Major Wellesley Tudor Pole. People were asked to devote one minute of prayer for peace at nine oclock each evening. The Silent Minute began in 1940 during The Blitz on the UK when Major Wellesley Tudor-Pole perceived "an inner request from a high spiritual source that there be a Silent Minute of Prayer for Freedom, at 9pm each evening during the striking of Big Ben. If enough people joined in this gesture of dedicated intent, the tide would turn and the invasion of England would be diverted." The Silent Minute was revived by Dorothy Forster and gained a new following of people after the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York. Date: circa 1940
