As part of this summer I went to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford. It’s a great place and I’ve been there loads in the past. This time was to talk bollocks with an old friend AB. We wandered around and shared stories along with catching up with what’s been going on for the last two years. In the American hangar we saw a B25 Mitchell which had apparently once been the gate guardian at a US Base in Germany. This meant some soldiers would sign the plane by scratching their name into the skin of the aircraft.
If you look carefully you can see that the name in the middle is Elvis. This is plausible as he spent time in the US Army and was in Germany. The fact that he spelt his last name wrong shouldn’t get in the way of a good story.
You might have to look at the original pictures, click on them, to be able to see the details!
This is number 1905 and so continuing a recent feature I give you some things that happened in that year [common era]:
- A boiler explosion in the Grover Shoe Factory kills 58.
- Einstein submits his photoelectric effect paper.
- The French pass a law concerning the separation of church and state.
