Paintings of WW1 aerial battles

A glimpse of World War One in Italy at the Estorick Collection (in north London) - the exhibition has just closed but was a great introduction to the paintings of Sydney Carline in particular. Carline (1888-1929) based his drawings and paintings of aerial battles on his own experience as a fighter pilot. Later he was engaged by the government as a war artist.

World War One bottles in Israel

An amazing find by Israeli archaeologists excavating near Ramla - hundreds of gin, wine, beer and other bottles left by British troops in World War One. Troops were camping in the area during a  mission to capture Jerusalem by Christmas 1917.
British troops march into the city in early December 1917
