A Marine Holds Aloft The Union Jack Of The Pegasus Which Had Been Shot From Its Staff.


A Marine Holds Aloft The Union Jack Of The Pegasus Which Had Been Shot From Its Staff.

During the action the flag of the Pegasus was shot away from its staff. A Marine at once ran forward, picked it up, and waved it aloft. He was struck down while standing on the deck exposed to the enemys fire, but another came forward to take his place. Until the end the flag was kept flying. Most of the casualties occurred on deck, and with the utmost bravery Staff-surgeon Alfred J. Hewitt rendered every assistance to the wounded.

 Surely one of the most beautiful of the clipper ships, Cutty Sark is seen driving through a moderate swell en route to the UK with another valuable cargo.  She was designed by the great Hercules Linton and her beautiful hull built by Scott & Linton's Dumbarton shipyards but, when that company went bankrupt, the nearby firm of Denby Brothers took over to complete the build.  Today she is a magnificent sight, beautifully preserved and on display at Greenwich in London.

 Designed by the great Ernst Heinkel, the diminutive D.1 was an essential stop-gap that provided the Austro-Hungarian pilots with a front line fighter until they were able to re-equip with Albatros scouts in the Summer of 1917. This little aircraft performed well and was generally held in high regard by its pilots, although it did have some shortcomings, namely that forward vision was extremely limited and the Schwarzloses gun was completely concealed in the overwing pod that made it inaccessible in the air. Most unusual of all was its interplane strut arrangement, designed to reduce drag, which gave it the nicknames Starstrutter or Spider. These examples are shown passing above the German cruiser Derfflinger.
