Contents Listing - Articles & Features in this issue
FEATURES ROOFTOP PURSUIT By late September of 1940 the inhabitants of South-East England had generally become accustomed to a daily routine of air battles; the staccato clatter of machine-guns, the delicately interwoven vapour trails, banshee howls of aero engines and the not infrequent blossoming of parachutes. But the sounds over the Sussex town of Hailsham on the morning of Friday 27 September 1940, were different. THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE' On the first Christmas of the Great War, a war that would become famous for its horror and brutality, British and German soldiers found themselves in No Man's Land shaking hands, exchanging gifts, and even playing football with the very men that, just hours before, they had been trying to kill. Martin Mace and Tony Pay examine the legend that is 'The Christmas Truce'. SURVIVORS: THE BRISTOL BEAUFORT The Bristol Type 152 Beaufort was a British twin-engine torpedo bomber designed by the Bristol Aeroplane Company, and developed from its earlier Blenheim light bomber. Continuing our 'SURVIVORS' series, Tony Pay investigates the surprising number of the type that can be seen today. THE SECRET AIRFIELDS During the Second World War, there were about fifty airfields all over Britain that never appeared on aeronautical charts. They were cloaked in secrecy and no wonder, because this is where hundreds of replacement aircraft were stored and prepared, safe from the eyes of the Luftwaffe. These temporary sites, the Satellite Landing Grounds (SLGs) are almost forgotten but, as David Smith discovers, there are still plenty of traces of their former existence. REGULARS DATAFILE In this month's Datafile, Mark Khan examines the 3-inch STOKES MORTAR, a British trench mortar invented by Sir Wilfred Stokes KBE and used during the First World War. CAMERA AT WAR A selection of photographs of British vehicles in North Africa during the Second World War.
