Escape to the Elbe, Berlin, 3rd May 1945 by David Pentland. (GL)


Escape to the Elbe, Berlin, 3rd May 1945 by David Pentland. (GL)

Following Hitlers death, the decision was taken by the officers and men of Sturmartillerie Brigade 249 to break out of the doomed capital. Shortly before midnight on the 3rd, what remained of the unit fought to the edge of the city at Spandau. By this time the brigade had been split into two elements, the first under Hauptmann Herbert Jaschke successfully punched their way out to the west. The second group was not so lucky, and its survivors fell into Soviet captivity.

1995: Three 105mm Light Guns are coming into action on the roadside.  Towed by an AFV 432, the far gun has arrived first and is almost ready to fire.  The middle gun arrived next, and the nearest gun last.  Red pennants mark the position where each gun is to take up its position.  Due to the hard road surface, they were simply laid on the ground.  The towing vehicle could be either an AFV 432 or a Steyr, seen with the middle gun.  They can be parked near the gun, and the driver could well be in his seat, as shown.  Not all the men of the detachment are needed in order to bring the gun into action.  The 432's engine could be running, and smoke is blowing upward from the exhaust pipe.  It takes some time for the engine to switch off, and needs to run down.  At the far end of the position is the Command Vehicle (CV), a 432 which arrived at the position first.  Arriving last, and coming to park at the far end of the position, is a DROPS vehicle carrying ammunition.  As each gun comes into action the muzzle cover is removed.  The two boxes which contain the sight and the gunner's quadrant are laid on the ground.  The prism is also on the ground, yet to be set up.  The director party is out of sight in this view.  On the gun, the base of the sighting mechanism is visible, but the sight itself is not yet fitted.  The buff-coloured pad is the gun-aimer's forehead protector.  Thick, white arctic socks (with a thin red stripe near the top) were issued, and can be seen on one man.  One individual (a Bombardier) always wore his sleeves rolled up.  Into the hollow end of the handspike the rammer has been inserted.  Its conical end can be seen.  In the background can be seen the ski-slope, built for the 1984 Olympic Winter Games.

 The 1991 Grand Prix season started with great public expectations supporting, encouraging and urging on Britains one and only Nigel Mansell to win the Formula One World Championship. In the race at Silverstone a fired up Mansell was dominant in front of the ecstatic home crowd winning the race with such style and aplomb. His arch rival Ayrton Senna was completely outclassed and to add insult to injury he ran out of fuel on the last lap, finishing fourth behind our hero. In an unprecedented gesture, Nigel stopped on his victory lap and picked up Senna to get him safely back to the pits through the thronging crowd, so creating one of the most memorable moments in the history of Formula One. Disappointments were to follow throughout the season and it would not be until 1992 that Nigel would eventually lift the coveted crown.

 Lancasters of 617 Sqn <i>Dambusters</i> get airborne from their Scampton base at the start of their journey to the Ruhr Valley on the night of 16th May 1943 under the codename <i>Operation Chastise</i>.  These are aircraft of the First Wave, led by Wing Commander Guy Gibson, the Second Wave having already departed some ten minutes earlier to negotiate a more northerly route to their targets.  On this momentous night, both the Möhne and Eder dams were successfully breached, whilst the Sorpe was also hit, but without serious damage.  Of the nineteen aircraft that took part in the mission, eleven returned safely.

 Major Lanoe G Hawkers Bristol Scout C 1611, the No 6 Sqn aircraft in which he shot down two enemy planes on 25th July, 1915, and sufficiently damaged a third enemy aircraft to force it to the ground. He is shown here in combat with an Albatross C.III - soon to fall as one of his victims that day.  Lanoe G Hawker earned the first aerial Victoria Cross (VC) of the war for this action, but was killed in November 1916, after a lengthy battle with the infamous Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen, becoming his 11th victim.

 Even the most faithful of Messerschmitt Me 109 pilots that also flew the Focke-Wulf Fw190 grudgingly admitted the well-proportioned and aesthetically pleasing Fw190 was the finest single-seat fighter in the Luftwaffes armoury during World War II. Soon after its arrival on the Channel Front in 1941, when initial bugs were ironed out, this superb fighter came close to fighter design perfection by the standards of the day. Just as the Mk IX Spitfire held the mantle as Britains most outstanding combat fighter of the war, so was the Fw190 regarded by experienced Luftwaffe pilots. Within months of its operational debut the Fw190 was causing widespread consternation among RAF pilots, the new fighter equal to the Mk IX Spitfire in all but its ability in the tightest of turning circles. By 1944 the technically superb Fw190 came into its own in the great air battles against the USAAFs massed daylight raids. The defence of the Reichs western airspace rested on the shoulders of a few Jagdgschwarden who, against steadily increasing odds, were tasked with interception and destruction of the attacking American heavy bombers. Flying alongside the two established Channel fighter wings JG2 Richthofen and JG26 Schlageter, equipped with Fw190s and led by the great fighter ace Oberst Walter Oesau, JG1 joined the battle in defence of northern Germany. Nicolas Trudgians painting Storm Chasers depicts the Fw190As of I./JG1, distinguished by their distinctive black and white striped cowls, scrambling from the snow-covered Dortmund airfield on 10 February 1944 to intercept another inbound American daylight raid. Nicks dramatic view of this technically supreme fighter conveys its true class as it hurtles over the airfield, its undercarriage retracting as the Fw190 accelerates into the climb. Below, sharing the airfield with I./JGI, are the Fw190s of the newly formed Sturmstaffel 1, identified by their black-white-black tail bands, seen taxiing out to join in the interception. Despite bad weather conditions the Luftwaffes defending fighters scored heavily that day, inflicting severe losses on the Americans, claiming 29 bombers and 8 fighters shot down in the action.
