The American 'Great White Fleet' arrives in Australia

The American 'Great White Fleet' arrives in Australia - Uncle Sam meeting a Kangaroo. On 20 August 1908 well over half a million Sydneysiders turned out to watch the arrival of the Fleet. President Roosevelt had initiated the deployment of the US Atlantic Fleet to the Pacific - the first such movement of great battleships - to test his Navys professionalism, arouse popular interest in and enthusiasm for the navy, and demonstrate that the United States had arrived as a world power. Date: 1908

Welcome to the British Squadron to Japan

Following the signing of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance of 1902 British Military contingents arrived in Japan. The Alliance was to run for five years before being renewed, was primarily directed against the potential shared menace posed, it was believed, by France and (most probably) Russia in the Far East. The alliance obligated either power to remain neutral if one or other found itself at war. However, should either power be obliged to fight a war against two or more powers, the other signatory was obliged to provide military aid. This postcard (produced by Mitsukoshi, Ltd. an international department store chain with headquarters in Tokyo, Japan) featuring a Japanese woman in a garden setting, is a celebration of the arrival of the British Squadron in July, 1906. Date: 1906
