Grafiti Wall, Belfast, 1973

?Graf?ti Wall?, Belfast, 1973 - Oil on board, by Ralph Lillford, 1973. Associated with Northern Ireland (1969-2007). During ?the Troubles?, Belfast street walls became a place for rival sectarian graf?ti, often painted layer upon layer. A form of psychological warfare which also demonstrated control of terrain, the slogans were often directed at the British Army, exhorting them to ?go home?, or else boasted of paramilitary loyalties, such as ?Provos Rule?. Periodically the Army would drive past these walls and throw paint bombs at the slogans. The soldier wears a fragmentation vest, commonly known as a flak jacket, over DPM (disruptive pattern material) jacket and trousers. He wears his visor up on his helmet and carries an anti-riot shield. Date: 1974

Dogs as Riffians during Melillan Campaign

During the Mellilan campaign in Morocco where Spanish troops fought against local Riffian forces, the Riffians dressed up dogs in turbans and burnous and sent them out from point to point in front of the Spanish soldiers. From a distance, the dogs looked very like a man crawling along the ground and tended to draw fire during which time, the Riffians were able to take advantage and shoot at the Spanish. Scenes witnessed by the famous dog trainer Major Edwin Richardson who travelled to the seat of war with an ambulance dog. He described what he had seen to the ILN special artist, H. W. Koekkoek. Date: 1909

Warfare in the future - as predicted in 1932

An impression of what warfare might look like in 2032, as predicted by The Modern Boy magazine in 1932. It suggests that invading troops might attack via a shell, with bumpers to save the shock of landing. The accompanying caption also advises, 'The men will have to be strapped up in special spherical tanks inside the shells so that they will remain upright however much the shell twists about during its journey through the atmosphere. As shells usually become red-hot owing to the speed they travel, the fellows inside will also need a bit of ice-cream with 'em to prevent them from frizzling like bacon in a pan!' It concludes by saying, 'We certainly all ought to be glad this is only a forecast - at present.' Date: 1932
