WW1 - Captain Hawker takes on three Germans in the air

WW1 - Captain Lanoe George Hawker VC, DSO (1890-1916), was a British flying ace, with seven credited victories. This illustration captures an occassion on 25th July 1915, where Captain Hawker is in an unequal aerial battle with three German aeroplanes. Each German aeroplane is manned by a pilot and an observer, and armed with machine-guns. The first plane escapes, the second bursts into flames as it decends, and the third continues to attack, but is eventually driven down into the ground in British lines. Captain Hawker was rewarded the Victoria Cross, the highest award for gallantry that a British and Commonwealth serviceman can achieve. Date: 1915

Zeppelin observation car by G. H. Davis, WW1

Cut-away illustration of an observation car which had been attached to a Zeppelin but cast off and picked up over East Anglia allowing the British, and artist, G. H. Davis work out what the interior looked like. The car, which was lightly constructed, was 14 feet long and weighed about 122lb. It was provided with a trap door in the top, through which the observer entered and then had to lie prone on a mattress at the bottom of the car with a telephone strapped to his head, and with clock, compass, light and other instruments conveniently near. The whole was then lowered from the Zeppelin and as the car had streamline form with large fins at the rear end it kept fairly steady and head-on to its course. Date: 1916
