Ships trapped in Suez Canal, Six-Day War Featured Print

Ships trapped in Suez Canal, Six-Day War

Fifteen ships trapped in the Suez Canal as a result of the Six-Day War (5-10 June 1967) between Israel and Egypt. Although the war was short, the Canal was blocked at both ends and the ships were trapped in the Great Bitter Lake section between 1967 and 1975. The ships were nicknamed the Yellow Fleet because of the desert sand which covered them as time went on. Crew members of different nationalities got together to provide mutual support, organising social events, sporting competitions, film screenings, church services, etc. Seen here are crew members playing a game the deck of a ship, with other ships visible in the distance. . Date: 1970s

Women Workers WW1 Y.W.C.A Womens Day Featured Print

Women Workers WW1 Y.W.C.A Womens Day

Poster commemorating Women's Day, a fund-raising event on behalf of the Women's Wartime Workers Fund. The Young Women's Christian Association (Y.W.C.A) set up centres for munitions workers, W.A.A.C's, nurses, land girls and for girls and women from overseas stranded in the UK because of the conflict. They also set up clubs near training camps and welfare centres for women in France. The figure of the women wearing a Y.W.C.A symbol reaches out to women workers (one holding a shell), servicemen, children and the elderly, against a grim industrial landscape. Date: circa 1916

1937 Coronation - Abbey guests stranded in rain after ceremo

Peers and peeresses taking shelter during the height of the downpour which occurred at the most inconvenient possible moment after having held off during the Coronation ceremony of King George VI. A torrential downpour afterwards meant that a large proportion of the 7500 guests at Westminster Abbey were left stranded waiting for cars up to five hours after the event had finished. Date: 1937
