Charles James Fox speaking out in Parliament against slavery

Charles James Fox (1749-1806), British Whig Statesman, MP and ardent anti-slavery campaigner, shown here speaking out in Parliament against the slave trade. One of his last political acts was to move a resolution for the general abolition of the slave trade, asserting on 10 June 1806 that, this House, conceiving the African slave trade to be contrary to the principles of justice, humanity, and sound policy, will, with all practicable expedition, proceed to take effectual measures for abolishing the said trade'. The House of Commons voted overwhelmingly in favour of the resolution, and the Lords assented on 25 June. For his political supporters, the abolition of the slave trade came to be emblematic of the liberty so dear to Fox.

Hanworth Air Park - 1932 - Graf Zeppelin D-LZ127 Featured 21 May 2020 Print

Hanworth Air Park - 1932 - Graf Zeppelin D-LZ127

The German airship Graf Zeppelin D-LZ127 at Hanworth Air Park conducting sight-seeing flights over London. On 18 August 1931, the German airship Graf Zeppelin (D-LZ127) visited Hanworth. On 2 July 1932, it returned as part of a round-Britain tour, and next day operated paid flights over London. LZ127 was unique among all the commercial rigid airships in that it was the only one to exclusively use a gaseous fuel called Blaugas. Blaugas was a mixture of Propylene, Methane, Acetylene, Butylene and Hydrogen, which, being only 9% heavier than air, the use of Blaugas removed the problem of significant weight loss and trim as the fuel was used. Date: 1932
