#OTD in 1991, an F-14 from VF-1 shot down an Iraqi Mil Mi-8 during the Persian Gulf War. It was the last air-to-air kill scored by a U.S. Navy Tomcat and the only one over a helicopter. A victory mark representing the helicopter was stenciled onto the F-14. #usn #navy #flynavy #aviation #plane

“The Japanese wart … will be removed from my face, and I will be beautiful once more” – Soviet propaganda from the Second World War (1945) showing a fucking creepy Planet Earth-man shaving the “Japanese wart” and lots of tiny swastikas off his face with a USSR-US-UK blade. I presume this is a TASS (state) piece, which often included little poems below the illustration. Full translation of the poem in comments. Interesting one eh?

Repost from @yadvashem ‘The Jewish boxer Jonas Kessler, Koeln, Germany, 1926. Jonas was born on 24/03/1908 and perished in Auschwitz in July 1944. His parents, Moses and Sara Kessler were murdered in Auschwitz in 1942. The photograph and Pages of Testimony in memory of Jonas Kessler and his parents were submitted to Yad Vashem by Jonas’ brother Samuel Kessler.

Photos of Jimmy Stewart from his time in the USAAF. Stewart flew bombers and received several medals for his service – including the Croix de Guerre. For those who haven’t read about Jimmy’s military days, I highly recommend it..

#FunFactFriday – Navy tradition holds that pilots who make a navigational error and land on the wrong carrier get mocked by the crew who “decorate” the plane with graffiti. Adding @USAirForce markings is the ultimate insult to an already embarrassed naval aviator #navy #Usn #plane #aviation #jet #airforce

My favorite quote, and one so very applicable for today: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing” ~ Edmund Burke … Thank you for raising your right hand and taking that vow. Thank you for all who came before, and for all who will come after. Happy Veterans Day. *a little throwback to my first Afghanistan vacay. This just before they destroyed me in a snowball fight #thankavet

Happy Thanksgiving! In this photograph, Winston Churchill delivers a speech during a Thanksgiving Day celebration at the Royal Albert Hall, London, in 1944. Poised with his hands on his lapels, he stands below a large poster of Abraham Lincoln.

[Kaiser Wilhelm with his dog in exile c. 1930s] ————————————————————————
After world war one Kaiser Wilhelm II was sent on exile to The Netherlands until his death in 1941. In 1938 in the lead up to world war two, Hermann goering, chief of the Luftwaffe and world war one ace, would visit The ex Kaiser at the his home in the city of doorn. The kaiser was unimpressed with goering saying he was “A vain creature”. After the german takeover of France The kaiser would send Adolf Hitler a telegram saying “Under the deeply moving impression of the capitulation of France I congratulate you and the whole German Wehrmacht on the mighty victory granted by God”. Once germany controlled the Netherlands Hitler, being an ex soldier fighting for the kaiser invited the kaiser back to germany but he refused following his vow “to never return to germany till it’s a monarchy again”. —————————————————-
