Wreck of HMA1, the Royal Navys first airship Featured 6 Feb 2012 Print

Wreck of HMA1, the Royal Navys first airship

The wreck of HMA1, The Mayfly. Built by Vickers, this was the first naval airship built in the UK; work began on it in 1909 at Cavendish Dock. On 13 February 1911 the Mayfly made her static trials in the shed. The motors were run and controls operated but outdoor trials could not be completed until the weather moderated. It was not until March that the crew were reported ready for launching the ship. By 24 September 1911 the decision was made to move her out of her hangar for full testing. However, disaster struck in the form of a sudden forceful beamside gust causing the ship to lurch; she just cleared the shed, but was laid onto her beam ends. She righted and was then being pivoted so that her nose would point back out to the dock, but there were cracking sounds amidships and she broke in two. She started to rise in an inverted V formation but the crew in the after gondola dived overboard and the stern flew up into the air. The ship was later left to rot in her shed, while many discussions took place at the Admiralty regarding the future of naval airship operations.

Boys having fun during Medway floods, Kent Featured 6 Feb 2012 Print

Boys having fun during Medway floods, Kent

A group of boys having fun on their way home from school after the River Medway overflowed its banks. All along the Upper Medway Valleys from Maidstone to Tunbridge, and up to its source at Forest Row, on the Sussex side of Tunbridge Wells, hundreds of acres of agricultural land was under water. The town of Tonbridge was flooded, and the High Street was like a miniature canal. In several of the cottages the water rose to the upper storeys, and a third of the town was flooded.

Jack Johnson, boxer, going to court, London Featured 6 Feb 2012 Print

Jack Johnson, boxer, going to court, London

The American heavyweight boxer Arthur John Johnson, better known as Jack Johnson (1878-1946), nicknamed the Galveston Giant, World Heavyweight Boxing Champion between 1908 and 1915, seen here on his way to court in Bow Street, London, surrounded by a large crowd. He was the first African-American to win the Heavyweight Championship. There was an injunction to stop the fight between Johnson and Billy Bombardier Wells at Earls Court, as it was alleged it could breach the peace -- religious opponents of excessive prize money, and opponents of contests between the races, caused the fight to be cancelled by Winston Churchill, who was then Home Secretary.
September 1911
