British sentries at railway tunnels at the start of WWI

Once Germany had declared war on Russia, war with France was certain to follow, with the possibility that Great Britain could be forced into the conflict too. The British government therefore took every precaution in view of possible eventualities: it was believed that German spies may attempt to paralyze railway communications so sentries were placed on guard at all bridges and tunnels on important railway lines. Date: 1914

Titanic - Lifeboats needed to save lives on board ships

A diagram published in the Illustrated London News following the disaster of the sinking of White Star passenger liner, RMS Titanic showing the ratio of lifeboat capacity to passenger numbers on board various ships, raising questions about the safety precautions. The left hand column shows the the worst culprits including the Mauretania (only 976 lifeboat capacity for 2972 passengers) and Cunard's Franconia (only 962 lifeboat capacity for 3115 passengers). The Titanic's sister ship, the Olympic did not fare much better than its ill-fated sibling having only 20 lifeboats to hold 1176 passengers, despite an overall passenger number of 3447. Date: 1912
