Two Short Sunderlands rescuing crew, 1940

An artist's impression of two Short Sunderlands rescuing the crew of the torpedoed merchant ship Kensington Court, 1940. On 18th September 1939 Kensington Court was stopped by U-32 with 13 shots of gunfire about 120 miles west of Lands End. The ship later sunk and the master and 34 crew members were rescued by a Sunderland aircraft. The two pilots, F/Lt Thurston M.W. Smith and F/Lt John Barrett were awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC) for their feat. The Short S.25 Sunderland was a British flying boat patrol bomber developed for the RAF by Short Brothers. It took its name from the town, later city, of Sunderland in northeast England. From Our Air Force published by Ward, Lock & Co., Ltd., 1940

The Churning of the Ocean of Milk, ca. 1780-90. Creator: Unknown

The Churning of the Ocean of Milk, ca. 1780-90. At the time of the great deluge aeons ago, many treasures-- including amrita, the nectar of immortality--were lost beneath the primordial ocean. Gods and demons still jockeying for power decided to raise these powerful objects from the watery depths. They harnessed the serpent Vasuki as a rope to turn Mount Mandara and Vishnu assumed his tortoise avatar to support the giant pivot. The demons, tricked into pulling the head of the snake, were weakened by its poisonous breath. Here, many of the treasures have already been raised and are visible in the sky, while Vishnu is seen twice, below and atop the peak
