 The remarkable Fairey Swordfish served with distinction throughout WWII, despite being nothing short of an anachronism.  Its dated appearance belied a solid, workmanlike airframe that provided a stable platform from which to launch torpedoes against enemy shipping, the venerable 'Stringbag' sending a greater tonnage of Axis shipping to the bottom than any other allied aircraft in the Second World War.  A Mk.II is shown taking off from HMS Ark Royal early in 1941.

 Two Republic P.47s of the 78th FG roar low over the Normandy beaches as the Allied invasion gets underway during Operation Overlord on 6th June 1944 as an LCT(5) Tank Landing Craft makes its break for the beach through a hail of enemy fire.  These craft were used at all the D-Day beaches, carrying mixed loads of vehicles and stores in almost impossible conditions.

 Immediately following the Allied invasion of northern France in June 1944, 488 Sqn RNZAF found themselves in the thick of the fighting, keeping enemy intruders at bay, flying mainly at night, a role to which their young pilots aspired and excelled. Among those was Flt Lt G E 'Jamie' Jameson who, together with his navigator Norman Crookes, shot down no fewer than eight enemy aircraft in Mosquito NF.XIII MM466, this particular machine becoming the most successful Mosquito of WWII in terms of aerial victories.  Jameson was to be credited with a final total of eleven victories before being repatriated home.

 Equipped with the Henschel Hs.293 guided bomb, the Dornier Do.217s of KG 40 and KG 100 represented a new and significant threat to Allied shipping.  The first such victims were the sloop HMS Egret and the destroyer HCMS Athabaskan, both in the Bay of Biscay in August 1943.  Although crude and needing to be guided to their target by an operator in the launch aircraft, the Hs.293s introduced a new breed of air-launched weapon to modern warfare, a concept that is still in use to this day.

 Messerschmitt Bf.109G-2s of 6./JG 5 sit quietly following a fresh snowfall in March 1943, the aircraft swept down and ready for action, should the call come.  Nearest aircraft is that of August Mors, 'Yellow 7', whilst the mount of Heinrich Ehrler, 'Yellow 12' sits nearby.  Just three months later, on 12th June, Mors was forced to abandon his stricken machine, baling out over enemy territory.  Despite this, he managed to evade capture and was back with his unit only six days later.

 At Dawn on 9th March 1862, as the American Civil War raged on, an extraordinary combat took place in Hampton Roads, a naval exchange that was to herald a new age and completely change the concept and design of modern warships.  Having already destroyed the two Federal warships <i>Cumberland</i> and <i>Congress</i> the previous day, the Confederate ironclad <i>CSS Virginia</i> readied herself for another day's work, her target this time being the grounded <i>Minnesota</i>.  As the <i>Virginia</i> approached her target, she was confronted by the much smaller Union ironclad <i>Monitor</i> which had just arrived after a fraught journey from New York.  Thus began an exchange of fire that lasted more than three hours, each ship's shot merely bouncing and deflecting off its opponent without inflicting any serious damage.  With her smokestack shot away, the <i>Virginia</i> now concentrated her shot on the <i>Monitor'</i>s tiny wheelhouse where a direct hit blinded the Union ship's commander, necessitating a temporary withdrawal.  By the time <i>Monitor</i> was ready to re-engage, the <i>Virginia</i> was limping away, the result of this fierce encounter being nothing more than stalemate.  Neither ship could claim any form of victory and neither had sustained any meaningful damage.  Though clumsy and difficult to handle, the thick iron plating and low profiles of these very different vessels signaled a direction in warship design that lasted until the Second World War, eighty years later.

 Often sidelined by other, more glamorous fighters, the Vought F4U Corsair is considered by many to be the best piston-engined fighter ever built, able to outfly anything the Japanese air force could pit against it.  So perfect was this versatile and robust design that it remained in production for 12 years, right up until 1952.  The most important operator of the F4U during the Second World War was the US Marine Corps, flying from scattered island bases throughout the Pacific, these examples being from the 4th Marine Air Wing based at Majuro Atoll in the Marshalls during the Summer of 1944.

 When a De Havilland Comet first flew from London to Johannesburg in the Spring of 1952, the jet age was truly born, heralding a new era in fast passenger services to all corners of the globe.  Far ahead of the competition, the Comets ruled the airways until Boeing's mighty 707 moved the bar still higher.  Typical of later marks, this 4B (G-APME) was one of fourteen operated by British European Airways and is shown descending through a heavy evening sky into Heathrow.

 Whilst on a strafing sortie over German occupied St Trond airfield on 25th February 1944, Spitfires of 331 Sqn launched an attack on the Heinkel He.177 bombers that were stationed there.  Among those taking part was Norwegian ace Lieutenant Frederick Arild Sverdrup Fearnley, flying Spitfire Mk IX MJ354 (FN-W).  Fearnley shared in the destruction of a Heinkel He.177 as it tried to take off, but his Spitfire was immediately hit by ground fire, the young Norwegian losing his life in the ensuing crash.  Fearnley was credited with a possible 7 victories in his short career.

 Providing vital support to the <i>Pedestal</i> convoy in 1942, No.248 Sqn were in action from their base on the island of Malta when, on 21st August, Sgt Ron Hammond destroyed a probable two aircraft in a single sortie.  Flying Bristol Beaufighter T4843 (WR-X), he first dispatched a Ju88 and then found himself on the tail of a Fiat BR.20.  Approaching on the enemy's right quarter, Hammond shot up the BR.20's starboard engine, the raking fire ripping through the wing and along the fuselage, eventually tearing off the port tailfin, which spun away, perilously close to his own aircraft.  The Fiat was seen to spin out of control, plunging into the sea below.

 Already an ace in WWII, Ed Heller was again to find himself involved in aerial combat during the conflict in Korea, now flying the mighty F-86 Sabre with the 25th FIS, 51st FIW against the potent MiG15.  Moving to 16th FIS as Squadron Commander, he was to claim 3.5 victories over MiGs before being shot down himself in January 1953.  His release from captivity by the Chinese did not occur until two years after the war ended but, upon repatriation, he returned to the air flying F-100s during the Cuban Missile Crisis, finally retiring in 1967.  He is depicted here in <i>Hell-er Bust X</i>, claiming a MiG 15.

 Legendary during her brief wartime career, Ark Royal heralded a new era in aircraft carrier design, possessing tremendous hull rigidity and a formidable array of defensive armament. Apart from her key role in Force H in the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic, Ark Royal also took part in operations off Norway in company with HMS Glorious.  It was one of her Blackburn Skuas that claimed the first aerial victory of WWII against a German aircraft on 26th September 1939 and one of her Fairey Swordfish that crippled the mighty Bismarck, leading to the German capital ship's destruction at the hands of the Royal Navy.  On 13th November 1941, Ark Royal was torpedoed by U-81 off Gibraltar, her severe list causing flooding to choke her boilers, bringing her to a standstill.  Her crew were taken off and the mighty <i>Ark</i> continued to list until she eventually capsized and sank.

She is depicted here in company with <i>The Great Artiste</i>, one of the other two B-29s that took part in the first nuclear bombing mission against the Japanese city of Hiroshima on 6th August 1945.  The three ship mission consisted of <i>Enola Gay</i> (victor number 82), piloted by Colonel Paul W Tibbets, <i>The Great Artiste</i> (89), piloted by Major Charles W Sweeney and number 91, later named <i>Necessary Evil</i>, piloted by Captain George W Marquardt. Tibbets' aircraft was assigned for weapons delivery, whilst Sweeney's carried blast measurement instrumentation and Marquardt's was the camera ship.  This mission and that against the city of Nagasaki a short time later changed the course of history forever and remain to this day the only time that nuclear bombs have been used in anger.

 Launched in Barrow in Furness on 22nd August 1929, the Parthian Class submarine HMS Poseidon (P99) was destined to meet a tragic fate on 9th June 1931 when she was inexplicably involved in a collision with a Chinese freighter in the Bohai Sea during exercises in clear visibility.  31 of her crew managed to get into the water before the submarine sank, whilst a further eight escaped from the submerged vessel.  Two of these didn't make it to the surface and one died later in hospital, making a tragic total of 21 deaths in this extraordinary tragedy.  HMS Poseidon is depicted here in happier times, moving off from her depot ship as the night sky closes in.

 Without doubt the most advanced and forward-thinking design for an attack and reconnaissance aircraft in its day, the BAC TSR.2 was to fall victim to the shortsightedness of a misguided Labour government whose entrenched position in the mid 1960s dealt a terrible blow to the British aircraft industry - a blow from which it never fully recovered.  Whilst the few TSR.2 airframes that had been constructed languished in outside storage or on gunnery ranges, its intended American replacement, the General Dynamics F.111, was ready for RAF service fully ten years late and at a cost of nearly three times that of a production TSR.2, with the order being cancelled at the last minute.  Here, XR219 streaks into the air having ridden the 'hump' in the Boscombe Down runway.

 Laid down as early as June 1944, HMS Hermes (R12) was not commissioned into the Royal Navy until 25th November 1959.  This fine ship has enjoyed a long and varied career, perhaps its most notable role being that of flagship to the British Task Force that was sent to liberate the Falkland Islands following the Argentine invasion of 1982.  She was decommissioned in 1984 and sold to the Indian Navy, whereupon she was renamed Viraat.  Hermes is depicted here in stormy weather in the late 1970s before the Harrier 'ski jump' was added to her bow in readiness for the Falklands Campaign.
