HMS Warspite EAW005978

HMS WARSPITE, Prussia Cove, Cornwall. Warspite was launched in 1913 and saw action with the Royal Navy at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. During the second world war she saw service off Norway, Italy, in the Indian Ocean, Sicily and Normandy. Plagued by steering problems almost from the outset this Queen Elizabeth class battleship was finally sold for scrap in 1947. Photographed here in May 1947, she is seen here having run her anchor during a storm and run aground while on her way to be broken up. Aerofilms Collection (see Links)

In the photo are the submerged remains of Triumph Avenue, Crossley Avenue, Singer Avenue, Rover Avenue, Standard Avenue and Daimler Avenue. A hexagonal pillbox which is still at the end of Rover Avenue (at OS NGR TM140130) can be made out on the left hand side of the image. The road in the distance is Meadow Way.

Canterbury Cathedral EAW004809

CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL, Kent. Canterbury is the seat of the premiere Archbishop of the Church of England, and the Cathedral has attracted pilgrims from an early date, most famously the characters in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The city was bombed heavily during the war, unmasking evidence of the Roman town that underlies the Canterbury we see today. Aerial photograph taken in April 1947. Aerofilms Collection (see Links)
