ILN page on submarine hunting sea lions, WW1 Featured 24 May 2016 Image

ILN page on submarine hunting sea lions, WW1

A remarkable naval experiment came to light after the war was over, deemed so unlikely that when The Illustrated London News first heard of it, they believed it to be a hoax. The suggestion that attempts were made to train sea lions were trained to hunt submarines, did seem far-fetched. However, after a thorough investigation, they were satisfied with its authenticity enough to publish a lavish spread on it in April 1919. In the summer of 1917 the Admiralty hit on a novel way of hunting submarines. It was simply to employ tame sea-lions (Otaria Gillespie) to track them down-the idea being that the sea-lion could be taught to distinguish the noise of a submarines propeller and to follow it in the hope of getting food. A buoy would be attached to the animal, and a trawler would follow the buoy and drop a depth charge when the sea-lion appeared to have found the submarine

H.R.H. Princess Mary of Cambridge

Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge (1833-1897), later Duchess of Teck, youngest child of Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, granddaughter of George III and a cousin of Queen Victoria pictured at the age of 32. She married Prince Francis of Teck at St. Anne's Church in Kew (her childhood home) on 12 June 1866. The couple had four children, the eldest of whom was Princess May of Teck, the future Queen Mary, consort of King George V. Affectionately known as Fat Mary by the public, due to her considerable girth, she was a popular member of the royal family and involved herself in numerous charities. Date: 1866

Elsie Janis working on the land, WWI Featured 24 May 2016 Image

Elsie Janis working on the land, WWI

American actress, Elsie Janis posing for a picture looking very fetching in a land workers outfit during the First World War. Elsie Janis (March 16, 1889 February 26, 1956) was an American singer, songwriter, actress, and screenwriter. Entertaining the troops during World War I immortalized her as "the sweetheart of the AEF" (American Expeditionary Force). The photograph bears a striking resemblance to picture number 10472401 - a drawing of a land girl on a postcard by amateur soldier artist George Ranstead. It seems likely that Ranstead saw and copied this photograph of Janis. Date: 1917
