Florence Nightingale Featured Print

Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) was born in Italy. She moved to England with her wealthy family and was educated at home by her father. Although it was not deemed suitable for ladies of Florence's social standing to become nurses, she believed that it was God's chosen path for her. She trained in Kaiserswerth, near Dusseldorf and then returned to England to take a post at a Harley Street surgery. Florence Nightingale was sent along with 38 nurses to the Barrack Hospital in Scutari to assist with medical support. As she cared for the troops she gained much respect, writing letters home on the soldiers' behalf and fighting to improve the sanitary conditions of the field hospitals. When Florence returned from the Crimea she received a hero's welcome. She published two books about her opinions on hospital reforms and campaigned for better quality nursing training until her death in August 1910.

King Cnut the Great fails to halt the incoming tide

Cnut the Great (circa 985 or 9951035), (or Canute), King of Denmark, England, Norway, and parts of Sweden. Henry of Huntingdon, the 12th-century chronicler, wrote (the apocryphal story) of how Cnut set his throne by the sea shore and commanded the tide to halt and not wet his feet and robes. Yet "continuing to rise as usual (the tide) dashed over his feet and legs without respect to his royal person. Then the king leapt backwards, saying: "Let all men know how empty and worthless is the power of kings, for there is none worthy of the name, but He whom heaven, earth, and sea obey by eternal laws." Date: circa 1025

Saluting the Vanquished Foe, WW1 in the air by C Clark Featured Print

Saluting the Vanquished Foe, WW1 in the air by C Clark

A German monoplane, forced to descend with the British lines on the Western front. The plane was forced to alight owing to the tactics of the British aviators in the neighbourhood where the aerial duel was fought; the enemy machine was completely outmanoeuvred by the British during combat, and was gradually beaten down to earth. The Germans can be seen getting out of their plane and being approached by the successful airman who salutes his foe. In comparison to the war on the ground, aerial combat followed an unwritten code of chivalry and enemy airmen were treated with respect. Date: 1916
