Naval history and photographs of some of the Navy's great Commanders during the early 1900's and throughout the history of the Royal Navy.

H.S.H. Prince Louis of Battenberg, First Sea Lord.  c.1914

First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill.  (photo published 1914).

One of the most brilliant of the younger generation of British statesmen, Mr. Winston Churchill obtained cabinet rank in his thirty-fourth year.  In 1910 he was appointed Home Secretary, and in October 1911 he became First Lord of the Admiralty.  Thanks to his untiring advocacy, Parliament had constantly voted increasing supplies for the Navy, which in 1914 was admitted on all hands to be in the highest possible state of efficiency.

Winston Churchill later became Prime Minister during World War 2, and one of the greatest Prime Ministers Britian ever had.

 
Captain Robert Falcon Scott RN 1868-1912

He commanded the National Antarctic Expedition of 1900-4 and the British Antarctic Expedition which sailed in 1910to carry out research and survey work.

Captain Rt. Hon. Lord Charles W. D. Beresford, R.N., C.B. (1896)

This distinguished and brilliant Naval Officer is as well known outside the Sea service as he is in that profession, and is a favourite everywhere.  The enterprise which elicited the signal, "Well done, Condor," at the bombardment of Alexandria, exhibited his gallantry and daring, no less than the judgement and skill displayed when in charge of the city afterwards demonstrated his capacity as an administrator.  In the House of Commons his breezy speeches never fail to fill the benches.  Our illustration from a photograph taken in January 1895 at Chatham shows him in the frock coat and cap which form the everyday uniform of a Naval Captain.  The gallant sailor will be 50 on the 10th February next, and it is the hope of all his friends to soon see him hoist his flag as an Admiral.

 It is January 1945, and its cold. The German advance in the Ardennes is nearly over, but the Panzer Army is desperately throwing more troops into the breach who try to keep their momentum going in The Battle of the Bulge. Tasked with preventing German reinforcements from reaching the battle front, the Ninth Air Force launched a series of low-level attacks on enemy ground forces as they wind their way through the Ardennes. Flying conditions were not easy, cloud bases were low, and snow was in the air. Nicolas Trudgians new painting recreates an attack on January 23, 1945, by Douglas A-20 Havocs of the 410th Bomb Group. Locating an enemy convoy in open space near the German town of Blankenheim, the Havoc pilots make a swift attack diving from 8000 feet, catching the German force by surprise: Hurtling down the line of vehicles at 320mph they release their parafrag bombs from 300 feet then, dropping just above the roofs of the army trucks continue down the column blasting everything in sight with their forward-firing .50mm caliber machine guns. In the space of a few minutes the attack is completed and the convoy decimated. With ammunition expended and fuel running low the A-20 Havocs climb out of the zone and head for base in France. A 20mm shell has hit the lead aircraft wounding the Bombardier/Navigator Gordon Jones, which will seriously hamper their return through a blizzard, but all aircraft make it safely home - the lead aircraft, on landing, counting over 100 holes of various sizes. For their part in leading the successful attack the Lead Pilot Russell Fellers and Bombardier/Navigator Gordon G. Jones received the Silver Star. <br><br><b>Published 2001.<br><br>Signed by A-20 Havoc combat aircrews, including two Silver Star recipients, from World War Two.</b>

 It was Saturday 4th May 2002, the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.  Wonderful goals by Ray Parlour and Freddie Ljungberg for Arsenal were too much for their London rivals Chelsea to capture the FA Cup.  Four days later, on Wednesday 8th, Arsenal rode into Old Trafford.  This time a goal by Sylvain Wiltord on his 100th appearance for the club was enough for Arsene Wenger's team to overcome Manchester United and clinch the Premiership title, maintaining a record of scoring in every league game of the season.  For the second time in four years under their long-serving and inspirational captain Tony Adams, Arsenal had performed the classic double of English football, the third in their history making 2001-02, a season never to be forgotten.
