 Replacing Ewald Blumenbach as commander of Jasta 12 in May 1917, Hermann Becker continued his impressive scoring rate utilising the superb Siemens-Schuckert D.IV fighter, shown here in Beckers distinctive blue and white livery. One of the most advanced fighters of World War 1, this aircraft was possessed of an incredible rate of climb, taking just some 12 minutes to reach 16,000ft and having an operational ceiling of 26,240ft. Becker is depicted here claiming one of the many Spads that he shot down on his way to a final victory total of 23, all of them with Jasta 12.

 Based upon the design of an earlier 1913 racing biplane, Aviatik AG were able to introduce their B.1 into military service almost at the outbreak of World War 1, the type proving to be a useful reconnaissance machine during the early stages of the conflict. As with most B type aircraft of this time, the Aviatik B.1 was unarmed and carried an observer in the forward cockpit. Power was provided by a Mercedes D.1 inline engine whose large radiators were fitted to the port side of the fuselage, just above the lower wing. There is no record of exactly how many B.1s were constructed.

 In the early evening of the 18th of July 1941, following coastguard reports of an enemy aircraft in their vicinity, two Hurricanes of 87 Sqn  on detachment at the Airfield at St Mary's, Scilly Isles were scrambled  to an area some 30 miles south west of the Scilly Isles where they intercepted a lone Heinkel He111.  Alex Thom was the first to attack, his windscreen being sprayed with oil as his rounds tore into the Heinkel's starboard engine.  Breaking away, his wingman F/O Roscoe now took over the chase, but the German bomber was already mortally wounded and was observed to alight onto the sea where upon the crew immediately took to their life raft as the Heinkel began to sink beneath the waves just minutes later, Thom circled overhead until he saw the motor launch arrive to pick up the German aircrew before returning back to St Mary's.

Following the American victory at Yorktown in 1781, the war moved to the West Indies where a French fleet of 33 war ships commanded by Comte de Grasse began escorting an invasion force of 150 ships towards Jamaica. Between Guadeloupe and Dominica, the French encountered a British force of 37 war ships commanded by Admiral George Rodney. On April 9th 1782, the two fleets engaged in a long range gun duel, each fleet tried manoeuvering for an advantage over the following two days. Three French vessels were put out of action due to collisions, then on the morning of April 12th both fleets engaged in the major battle. The British broke the French line and De Grasse failed to reform the ships in line. After the days battle he surrendered his flag ship Ville de Paris to Admiral Lord Hood on HMS Barfleur. Admiral Rodney in his flag ship HMS Formidable engaged with other Royal Navy ships against four French ships of the line, the rest of the French fleet scattered.
