Luther as Junker Jörg in the Jena Inn with Swiss students, 1522, (1936). Creator: Unknown

Luther as Junker Jorg in the Jena Inn with Swiss students, 1522, (1936). 'Luther Als Junker Jorg Im "Baren" Zu Jena Mit Schweizer Studenten, 1522'. German priest and scholar Martin Luther (1483-1546) was a major inspiration behind the Reformation. He was excommunicated by Pope Leo IX in 1521 and declared an outlaw at the Diet of Worms. Emperor Charles V placed him under an imperial ban and his life was in danger, so he disguised himself as an aristocratic named Junker Jorg. Under the protection of the Elector of Saxony, Luther produced a German translation of the Bible, and he went on to found the Lutheran Protestant Church. From "Bilder Deutscher Geschichte", (Pictures of German History), No.12, cigarette card album. [Cigaretten-Bilderdienst, Altona-Bahrenfeld, Hamburg, Germany, 1936]

'Kavanagh and Kunuji in the Swamp', 1857 (c1912). Artist: Unknown

'Kavanagh and Kunuji in the Swamp', 1857 (c1912). During the Second Siege of Lucknow the defenders were able to send messengers to and from the Alambagh, from where in turn messengers could reach Cawnpore. A volunteer civil servant, Thomas Henry Kavanagh, disguised himself as a sepoy and ventured from the Residency aided by a local man named Kananji Lal. He and his scout crossed the entrenchments east of the city and reached the Alambagh. For this action, Kavanagh was awarded the Victoria Cross and was the first civilian in British history to be honoured with such an award for action during a military conflict. From The Romance of India, edited by Herbert Strang. [Hodder & Stoughton, London, c1912]
