The Sinking of the Bismarck Featured Print

The Sinking of the Bismarck

The sinking of the German Battleship Bismarck. In response to sinking the HMS Hood, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill issued the order to "Sink the Bismarck", spurring a relentless pursuit by the Royal Navy. Two days later, with Bismarck almost in reach of safer waters, Fleet Air Arm aircraft torpedoed the ship and jammed her rudder, allowing heavy British units to catch up with her. In the ensuing battle on the morning of 27 May 1941, Bismarck was heavily attacked for nearly three hours before sinking. Painting by Malcolm Greensmith Date: 1941

Mary Cornish - Heroine - WW2 - Sinking of SS City of Benares Featured Print

Mary Cornish - Heroine - WW2 - Sinking of SS City of Benares

Heroic Deeds of the War - Miss Mary Cornish. During the Second World War the City of Benares was used as an evacuee ship to evacuate 90 children from Britain to Canada. The ship was torpedoed in 1940 by the German submarine U-48 with heavy loss of life, including the death of 77 children. Cornish, an accomplished classical pianist who had volunteered as a children's escort, took charge of 6 of the surviving children and they survived for eight days in an open lifeboat. She was awarded the Medal of the Order of the British Empire (Civil Division) (OBE). The sinking resulted in the total cancellation of the Children's Overseas Reception Board (CORB) plan to relocate British children abroad. This card was produced by The Overseas League, who organised schools to collect pennies to buy cigarettes for troops overseas - with the delivered cigarettes came a card (of which this one) bearing details of the sender school and a request to 'acknowledge the gift' which will give 'the children a real pleasure'. Date: 1940
