If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders

If ye break faith with us who die, we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields. The mother, widow and little daughter of a British soldier who died early in World War One visit his grave on the Western Front. The mother reverently laid upon it the medals, which, had he lived, would have been awarded him. The widow and little daughter are carrying bunches of poppies. As signifying remembrance, this flower is the emblem of Poppy Day, kept on Armistice Day. Through the efforts of the British Legion and Earl Haig's Appeal for ex-Servicemen, poppies are on sale everywhere, to raise funds to aid those who survived the war broken and poor. Date: 1921

(United States Air Force - )Bell QF-63G-1-BE Kingcobra Pinball, on display at Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio in Texas, in the USAF History and Traditions Museum collection. Built as an RP-63G-1-BE Kingcobra and re-designated QF-63G-1-BE in 1948 The RP - QF-63Gs were manned live-fire targets for Bomber gunners, firing frangible bullets. From 1943, the P-63 was used as a manned live-fire target for bomber gunners, fitted with specially reinforced surfaces, against which frangible bullets (made of lead and plastic) could be fired. In August 1944, under contract No.AC29318, Bell converted five P-63As. All armament and internal armour was removed. All skinning was replaced by thicker metal sheet, the upper fuselage air-intake was replaced by a clam-shell intake and the canopy was armoured (38mm windshield and 25mm side-screens). Not less than 110 microphones were buried under the skin. A light hidden in the propeller hub flashed each time a bullet hit the aircraft and each hit was recorded on an automatic counter located on the instrument panel. Date: circa 1960
