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

View of the wreck at sunset, 1844. Explosion of a ship at Brighton by Captain Warner who '...put to the test his alleged power of destroying ships at sea, completely and instantaneously...an immense cloud, seemingly of smoke of an unusually white complexion, but really of spray, was seen to ascend from the vessel [the John of Gaunt]...she seemed to be enveloped in a cloud of smoke...the main and mizen masts were seen to fall over the vessel into the sea. A few seconds more, and a rumbling sort of noise, which it is difficult to describe, was heard to proceed from the ship, and ere yet the sound had died on the ear the vessel was a complete wreck. She went almost instantaneously to pieces, no trace of her being visible but the top of her foremast'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V.
