HMS Thisbe at sea

Description

Port side view of the R-class destroyer HMS Thisbe at sea, 1917 (TWAM ref. 2931 War29). The shipyard of R. & W. Hawthorn Leslie at Hebburn built many fine warships. During the First World War the firm built 2 light cruisers, 3 destroyer leaders and 25 torpedo boat destroyers. The firm also built machinery and boilers for 2 battleships, and a further 3 light cruisers. These and other warships built by Hawthorn Leslie before the War, are remembered in this set. There are remarkable images of warships under construction at Hebburn, as well as fascinating shots of the people who attended the launches. The set also contains majestic views of the ships at sea. The images are not only a testimony to the skill of those who designed and built these ships but also to the courage of those who sailed in them.

Royal marines passing through Ostend, 1915

Description

Postcard of members of the Royal Marine Light Infantry passing through Ostend, Belgium, 1915 (TWAM ref. 5770). Although the postcard describes the troops simply as British Army one of our volunteers has identified the men as belonging to the Royal Marine Light Infantry. The postcard is addressed to Mrs A. Robson, 58 Chester Road, Sunderland and dated 8 July 1915. 'On Active Service' has been written at the top right corner. The message has been transcribed below exactly as written: ?My Darling Wife, I got your nice cheery letter yesterday afternoon. So you see dear it got here quite soon, but really I thought you should have received far more than that, never mind wait till I set about it your ever loving husband Amos xxxxxxx?. This set celebrates the many postcards in our collections. The people, places and events they show can give us an insight into the past, documenting the landscape, the fashions, the way we lived. Some postcards are unused but others tell us something about the people who bought them, through the messages they wrote. They can give us a fascinating glimpse into people?s lives.
