Izmir, Turkey - Camel Train passes Mosque

A camel train passes a Mosque, following the Great Fire. Following the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, the Greek Army occupied Izmir, but the Greek expedition towards central Anatolia turned into a disaster for both that country and for the local Greeks of Turkey. The Turkish Army retook possession of Izmir on 9 September 1922, effectively ending the Greco-Turkish War (1919-1922) in the field. Part of the Greek population of the city was forced to seek refuge in the nearby Greek islands together with the departing Greek troops, while the rest remained following the ensuing 1923 agreement for the Exchange of Greek and Turkish Populations, which was a part of the Lausanne Treaty. The war, and especially its events specific to Izmir, like the fire that broke out on 13 September 1922, one of the greatest disasters Izmir ever experienced, influence the psyches of the two nations to this day with claim and counter-claim as to how actual events unfurled. The Greeks accuse the Turks of a number of atrocities against the Greek and Armenian communities in Izmir, following their recapture of the city on 9 September 1922 and the slaughter of as many as 100, 000 Armenian and Greek Christians throughout the city, an accusation the Turks reject.

Five members of the West Indies Auxiliary Territorial Servic

Photograph of five members of the West Indies Auxiliary Territorial Service sitting on a military vehicle, 1943-1947 (c).In the early stages of the Second World War black Caribbean women wishing to support the war effort were given little support or encouragement by the British government. Voluntary groups in the West Indies were given no financial support from the War Office in London and those wishing to travel to Britain were discouraged either by the racial prejudice of recruiting officers or by policies such as that which stipulated that those wishing to serve in Britain had to pay there own passage across the Atlantic. However, in face of the exigencies of war which necessitated the total mobilisation of the Empire and Commonwealth citizens it became clear that this discriminatory policy could not stand. By 1943 West Indian Women were allowed to join the uniformed services and by the end of the war many hundreds had seen service with these organisations and thousands more contributed through work in essential industries and agriculture.One of 69 photographs relating to the West Indies Auxiliary Territorial Service, 1943-1947. Date: 1943

Camel train at Cannakale, Turkey - Chanak Crisis

A camel train at Cannakale returned from provisioning the front line during the Chanak Crisis (Chanak Affair, Chanak Incident) - a war scare in September 1922 between Britain and Republic of Turkey. The incident was caused by Turkish efforts to push Greek forces out of Turkey to restore Turkish rule in the Allied occupied territories of Turkey. Turkish troops marched against British and French positions in the Dardanelles neutral zone, but the crisis quickly ended when Turkey, having overwhelmed the Greeks, agreed to a negotiated settlement that gave it the territory it wanted. There was no war. Due to his perceived mishandling of the crisis the incident led to the downfall of Prime Minister David Lloyd George. Date: 1922
