WRAF Mess Hut at Cranwell, WW1

Scene inside the WRAF (Women's Royal Air Force) Mess Hut at Cranwell, probably during the First World War. The Royal Naval Air Service Central Training Establishment Cranwell was commissioned on 1 April 1916, under the command of Commodore Godfrey M. Paine. Cranwell later became known as HMS Daedalus. In addition to flying training and airship operations, a Boys' Training Wing was also established at Cranwell. Its task was to train Naval ratings as air mechanics and riggers. With the amalgamation of the RNAS and the Royal Flying Corps on 1 April 1918, ownership of Cranwell was placed in the hands of the RAF. The former Naval base title was replaced by the designation Royal Air Force Station Cranwell. Date: c.1918

Hurunui Hotel, Hurunui, South Island, New Zealand

View of the historic Hurunui Hotel in Hurunui, South Island, New Zealand. The Hurunui Hotel is famous in New Zealand for its liquor licence, which it has held continuously since 1860. The original owner, John Hastie, was granted a conditional licence for the Hurunui Accommodation House. Conditions included "that he keep eight beds in four bedrooms; shelter for six horses; provide stock yards for yoking up cattle; provide horses for travellers to ford the river; and also direct strangers to a safe fording place." In 1982 a small group of local farmers banded together to save the hotel after it had fallen into disrepair. The community rallied and with help from other sources, including The Historic Places Trust, the Hotel was restored. It is now a thriving hotel and a popular stop for tourists. Date: circa 2000
