Duel by Ivan Berryman. (P)


Duel by Ivan Berryman. (P)

With the Battle of Britain at its height and the RAF stretched to breaking point, September of 1940 was a desperate time for the young pilots who fought gallantly to defend the UK against an imminent invasion. Among those brave few was the eighteen year old Geoffrey Wellum, shown here destroying a Heinkel He.111 on 11th September in Spitfire 1a K9998. The Heinkel fought back, peppering Wellum's Spitfire with holes, but the German bomber was mortally wounded and was seen to go down in flames.

 The potential value of aircraft at sea had been proven as early as the Battle of Jutland in 1916 and many experiments were undertaken to provide all significant warships with their own aircraft for spotting and reconnaissance purposes. One solution widely adopted was the fitting of flying-off platforms to the main guns, as demonstrated here, as a Sopwith 1½ strutter is launched from HMS Warspite in 1919.

This aircraft entered service with the RFC in February 1915. Nicknamed the gunbus, it was the first British aircraft to be designed as a fighting machine from the start. The plane was armed with a single .303 inch Lewis machine gun, fired by the observer. It was only a short period of time before it was outclassed by German aircraft carrying synchronised forward firing machine guns.

 Although not as well known as the Gotha series of bombers, the Allgemeine Elektricitats-Gessellschaft G.IV acquitted itself well in the closing stages of World War 1, although its limited fuel load restricted it to short range duties and reconnaissance missions. The G.IV was popular with its crews because it was extremely robust and featured such state of the art developments as onboard radios and electrically-heated flying suits and was an easy aircraft to fly. Kampfgeschwader 4 are specially noted for flying their G.IVs up to seven missions a night on the Italian front.

 Rothmans Williams Renault FW18.  World Champion 1996.
Damon Hill by Michael Thompson.
Half Price! - 25.00
 A celebration of Nigel Mansells success in winning the Formula 1 World Championship and the Indy Car Championship in successive years. A celebration of the magnificent talents of Nigel Mansell. He made his debut in Formula 1 in 1981 and his superb driving technique made an instant impact. He recorded victory after victory coming agonisingly close to being world champion many times before gaining his well deserved Formula 1 title in 1992. The following year he recorded an unprecedented double, gaining the Indy Car championship in 1993. A feat that reserves his name quite rightly in the record books.

16 July 1760: This regiment of light cavalry, mounted on light, active horses, was raised in 1759 in the London area. It went to join the British Army in Germany in 1760, and a few weeks later in its first action it won high distinction and suffered very heavy loss.  With Hanoverian and Hessian troops, the newly arrived British light cavalry attacked a French force of five battalions and a regiment of hussars near the village of Emsdorf, in Hesse. In hot weather, and struggling to manhandle their artillery, the French infantry withdrew through woods towards Langenstein, where they rallied. Emerging from the trees into an open plain they were immediately charged by the 15th Light Dragoons. Three times the regiment charged the enemy, who outnumbered them five to one. A complete battalion was captured, along with six guns and numerous colours.  The light dragoons wore distinctive caps, light jockey boots and were armed with carbine, bayonet, pistol and sword. The drummers wore heavily laced green coats with hanging sleeves, and their drums bore the arms of the their Colonel. The enemy consisted of five battalions of two German regiments in the French army, the Infantry-Regiment Royal Baviere and the Infantry-Regiment Anhalt. German troops wore blue coats, with different facing colours, (in this case, black and straw colour respectively).
