Zeppelin destroyed by an English aviator, 1915. Artist: Lemonier

Zeppelin destroyed by an English aviator, 1915. On 7 June 1915 Flight Sub-Lieutenant Reginald Warneford, flying a Morane-Saulnier Type L, attacked and completely destroyed the German airship LZ37 in mid air over Ghent, Belgium. He pursued the Zeppelin inland from the coast at Ostend and brought it down by dropping bombs onto it, despite encountering machine gun fire from the airship. The explosion of the Zeppelin caused the engine of Warneford's aircraft to stop, forcing him to land behind enemy lines. After repairing the damage he was able to take off again and fly back to his base. Warneford received the Victoria Cross for his actions

Battle of Camerone, campaign of Mexico, 1863, (20th century). Artist: Jean Basin

Battle of Camerone, campaign of Mexico, 1863, (20th century). Fought on 30 April 1863, the Battle of Camaron established the legendary status of the French Foreign Legion as a fighting force. France intervened in Mexico in 1862, initially with the support of Spain and Britain, when Mexico suspended payments of interest on loans from foreign governments. The battle occurred when a small Foreign Legion detachment of 62 men and three officers commanded by Captain Jean Danjou were besieged and attacked at the Hacienda Camaron near Palo Verde by a Mexican force numbering 1600. After refusing to surrender, the Legionnaires mounted an heroic defence of the Hacienda until, out of ammunition, the surviving five mounted a bayonet charge against the Mexicans. Two were killed and the remaining three captured. The Mexican commander, Colonel Milan, was so impressed with their courage that he granted the survivors safe passage, allowing them to keep their flag. Every year the Foreign Legion commemorates the battle with a ceremony on what is known as Camerone Day
