Thurstons Billiards House, Leicester Square - Bombed - 1940

The bombed out remains of Thurston's Billiard House on Leicester Square during the Blitz on London, WWII. The corner building was hit by a parachute mine at 3:30am on 16th October 1940. One of the player name plates being examined is that of the legendary British professional snooker and English billiards player Joe Davis (1901-1978). Thurstons was completely destroyed and several taxis parked outside were wrecked. Heavy debris fell into Panton Street, blocking it. Other name plates of top Billards players (pictured here) include: Horace Lindrum, Melbourne Inman, Walter Donaldson, Fred Davis and Sidney Smith. Date: 1940

Douglas Dakota picking up a glider, Normandy; Second World W

Illustration showing a Douglas Dakota, C-47 Skytrain, swooping down with a hook trailing to pick up a Waco glider, Normandy, France, 1944. This system of launching and towing a glider was designed as a time-saving measure, so that tug aircraft, such as the Dakota, could pick up gliders without landing. This illustration was made by the Illustrated London News special artist, C.E. Turner using information supplied by the US Ninth Air Force
