One of the heroic ‘small’ boats which rescued allied soldiers from the beach in Dunkirk at the start of World War 2. More information here.
I’ve reprocessed (is that a word?) this image – an old favourite

A WW2 Enigma Machine used for encoding and decoding secret messages…
Not just any printing press. This press was used by the Dutch Resistance during World War 2 to print leaflets. More than 20,000 Dutch people were arrested because of their work with the Dutch Resistance. 2,000 Resistance workers were executed. Many Resistance workers were sent to concentration camps. So many brave people.
Let’s try this one again. It didn’t post properly last time.
An old favourite reworked…
The T1154 transmitter and the R1155 receiver were the first radios I used to transmit and receive signals (in my teens in the 1960s). These transmitters and receivers were used in Royal Air Force heavy bombers and other aircraft during World War 2. These transmitters and receivers used Morse code and the morse code signal used to ‘chirp’ (sounded a bit like a demented bird on drugs!). Some ‘chirping’ Morse code here.
…..but which aircraft?
The Enigma coding machine from World War 2.
The Dunkirk Small Boat
The Lysander. Used to drop secret agents behind enemy lines during WW2.
For anyone who likes this iconic aircraft:

I took a great many photographs of aircraft some time ago. The slideshow below shows some of the images. Please stay tuned because the images will be back on sale again soon.
