Repairing Barrage Balloons, c1943. Creator: Cecil Beaton

Repairing Barrage Balloons, c1943. Barrage balloons were used to defend against attack by enemy aircraft. They were raised aloft on cables to create a risk of collision, making the attacker's approach more difficult. 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]

Chaplin Court Treatt, British motoring pioneer, mending his veldtschoen (shoes), c1924-c1926 (1927). The notion of a Pan-African Highway crossing the continent from north to south was a British imperial dream that first emerged in the 1890s. In 1918, when Tanganyika passed from Germany to Britain after the First World War, it became theoretically possible to make the journey exclusively on British territories. Chaplin Court Treatt (1888-1954), a British former Major in the Royal Flying Corps, led the first expedition to successfully drive from Cape Town to Cairo. Leaving Cape Town on 23 September 1924, the expedition, in two Crossley light trucks, arrived in Cairo on 24 January 1926. Treatt and his wife Stella made a film of the expedition and she also wrote a book about the journey, Cape to Cairo, published in 1927. The highway did not come to fruition however.
