How Piper Laidlaw won the Victoria Cross on September 25, 1915, (c1920). Playing the 7th King's Own Scottish Borderers out of their trenches at the Battle of Loos in the midst of the gas attack'. During the Battle of Loos in northern France, British soldier Daniel Laidlaw (1875-1950) played his bagpipes to encourage the men of his regiment. He was awarded the Victoria Cross by King George V on 3 February 1916: For most conspicuous bravery prior to an assault on German trenches near Loos and Hill 70...During the worst of the bombardment, Piper Laidlaw, seeing that his company was badly shaken from the effects of gas, with absolute coolness and disregard of danger, mounted the parapet, marched up and down and played company out of the trench. The effect of his splendid example was immediate and the company dashed out to the assault. Piper Laidlaw continued playing his pipes until he was wounded. Laidlaw was also awarded the Croix de Guerre by France

St. Dunstan's-in-the-East, 1844. Creator: Unknown

St. Dunstan's-in-the-East, 1844. Church in the City of London. This beautiful church, by [Sir Christopher] Wren, is situated between Idol-lane and St. Dunstan's-hill, Tower-street...The church is dedicated to St. Dunstan, Archbishop of Canterbury, after whom it is called...The ancient church was damaged by the great fire of 1666, and was shortly after repaired; but the elegant spire and tower were not finished till 1699. They are masterpieces of design and construction....The body of the church having been only repaired by Wren, and having fallen much into decay, it was taken down and re-built in 1821, under the direction of Mr. David Laing, the architect of the Custom-house. It has been re-built in truly handsome style, and possesses one of the most embellished interiors in the metropolis'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

St. Christopher. 1423, 1915. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

St. Christopher. 1423, 1915. Creator: Unknown

St. Christopher. 1423, St Christopher (Christ-bearer) carrying Christ across the stream. Legend has it that St Christopher was a 3rd century Canaanite giant whose task was to carry travellers across the water. One day he had to carry a child across the stream, but as he did so the child grew continually heavier until it seemed to Christopher that he was carrying the weight of the whole world on his shoulders. When questioned the child revealed himself as Christ, and as proof ordered Christopher to plant his staff in the ground. The next morning the staff had been miraculously transformed into a fruit-bearing palm tree. The miracle led to many people converting to Christianity, which enraged the local ruler, who had Christopher imprisoned, tortured and finally, beheaded. 1915. From "Woodcuts of the Fifteenth Century in the John Rylands Library - Manchester". [The University Press, Longmans, Green & Company and Bernard Quaritch, Manchester, London, New York, Bombay, Calcutta, Madras, 1915]
