'Interrogation of Aircrews; W.A.A.F. Help In This Work', c1943. Creator: Cecil Beaton

'Interrogation of Aircrews; W.A.A.F. Help In This Work', c1943. The Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF), whose members were referred to as 'WAAFs', was the female auxiliary of the British Royal Air Force during World War II. Its members did not serve as aircrew, but although they did not participate in active combat, they were exposed to the same dangers as any on the home front working at military installations. Among their duties were: crewing of barrage balloons, catering, meteorology, radar, aircraft maintenance, transport, communications duties including wireless telephonic and telegraphic operation. At its peak strength, in 1943, the number of WAAFs (members of the force) exceeded 180,000, with over 2,000 women enlisting per week. From "Wings On Her Shoulders", by Katharine Bentley Beauman, Late Fight Officer W.A.A.F. [Hutchinson & Co Ltd, London, New York, Melbourne, c1943]

'Lieutenant Lewis Reenlisting Thomas Dixon', Spanish-American War, 19 June 1898, (1899)

'Lieutenant Lewis Reenlisting Thomas Dixon', Spanish-American War, 19 June 1898, (1899). American soldiers on board ship, bound for Cuba: 'I saw Lieutenant Lewis reading from a paper, his right hand lifted above his head, while before him was a sturdy-looking old soldier who also stood with hand
uplifted. Upon inquiry, I learned the cause of the scene, and asked them to hold their positions while I "snapped" them. Thomas Dixon had been in the regular army for twenty-one years, his time for retiring, or reenlisting, arrived that day, and he was taking his oath of allegiance to the Army of the United States for another term of three years. I recall having seen him several times at Daiquiri and Siboney, but I shall never see him again: he survived the fight before El Caney on July 1st and before San Juan on July 2nd, but in that scrimmage of the 10th, he was mortally wounded by a piece of flying shrapnel'. From "The Little I saw of Cuba" by Burr McIntosh, with photographs by the author. (In 1898, American actor and journalist William Burr McIntosh went to Cuba to cover the Spanish-American War for "Leslie's Weekly" as a reporter and photographer). [F. Tennyson Neely, London & New York, 1899]

(The military medal, mon general, should be received standing up). Scene which apparently took place behind the front lines in Champagne, France, during the First World War. A soldier has been seriously wounded in battle, his right leg was amputated at the thigh that morning, his collarbone was removed, and he was also trapanned after his skull was smashed by a shell. Nevertheless he attempts to stand as an officer decorates him for bravery. Front cover of "Le Petit Journal Supplement Illustre". [France, 24 October 1915]
