Contents Listing - Articles & Features in this issue
FEATURES THE WRECK OF THE SS THISTLEGORM The SS Thistlegorm was at anchor in the Gulf of Suez when she was sunk on 6 October 1941. In a recent report by the Egyptian tourist authority, it was claimed that the Thistlegorm is now the world's foremost diving attraction. In this month's News Feature Martin Mace examines the loss of this Defensively Equipped Merchant ship. AN ARNHEM SURVIVOR On 10 September 1944, the final go-ahead for Operation Market Garden was given. It was one of the most audacious pieces of military planning during the Second World War, and would result in the greatest airborne assault ever seen. Here, Phil Rodgers recalls one man's involvement. A man who was the sole survivor of an epic Victoria Cross wining flight. A MATTER OF CONSCIENCE? When Britain found itself at war with Germany, most men were prepared to fight for their country. But some adamantly refused to help the war effort in any way, creating a major problem for the Army and the Government. John Grehan and Tim Lynch follow the story of one such group of dissenters in 1916. WHAT HAPPENED TO C FOR CHARLIE? An old photograph on his Grandparent's mantelpiece spurred Geoff Reynolds into a quest to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of his uncle and his fellow crewmen in an RAF Lancaster bomber on the night of 31 May 1944. REGULARS CAMERA AT WAR A selection of photographs depicting the introduction of trench warfare on the Western Front in 1914. DATAFILE: THE THOMPSON SUB-MACHINE GUN This month Mark Khan takes a look the Thompson Sub Machine-Gun. Utilised by the British Armed Forces as a badly needed replacement for weapons lost during the retreat from France in 1940, the 'Tommy Gun' also provided front line service as the war progressed. SURVIVORS: THE BRISTOL BEAUFIGHTER Built as a company-funded long-range fighter (using major components from Bristol's earlier Beaufort torpedo-bomber), the prototype Beaufighter first flew on 17 July 1939. Wherever they were sent the Beaufighters usually made an impact. Few would doubt that, initially at least, the Beaufighter had been the product of improvisation; and fewer still that it had been a remarkably successful one. In the second of our new series, we take a look at some of the surviving examples.
