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

Recruit undergoing heart tests, WW1 Featured Print

Recruit undergoing heart tests, WW1

Testing a new recruit whose heart conditions the Army authorities are doubtful about. Rather worryingly, the photograph shows the man sitting with one bare foot and both hands in separate basins of water. Wires lead from the basins to the electrical apparatus which records the electronic charges which take place in the heart with each beat. These are shown on a moving sensitised film. Thank goodness for modern-day ECG equipment! Date: 1916

A Gentle Reminder Featured Print

A Gentle Reminder

The Dollar: Say, you two guys are looking a bit chippy; what's happened? The Sovereign & the Franc: Oh, just a bit of a scrap in France, old son: had you forgotten? A satirical cartoon showing the dollar, looking smart and plump, rather forgetting that the pound and franc are struggling due to the after effects of World War One.
