Japanese Nurses on their way to Europe
Tumblr media
Omaha Daily Bee #OTD Jan 16 1915 publishes a photo of the Japanese Nursing Corp posing for a photo on some steps. 
Tumblr media
Also shown is a Bisbee daily Review photo published on Jan 24 1915. The Nursing Corp was led by Doctor J Suzuki and were on their way to Europe to help with the war effort.  The Empire of Japan was an ally to the United Kingdom and France. The Imperial Japanese Navy protected Australian and New Zealand shipping as well as the West Coast of North America from German Raiders. They also sent the 2nd Special Squadron to help defend Allied shipping in the Mediterranean theatre of operations of World War I. On Dec 19 1914, seventeen Japanese nurses, two doctors, an interpreter and an administrator sailed from Yokohama on the Japanese liner Shunyo-maru bound for San Fransisco. From there they toured the country and in New York were treated like celebrities, invited to lavish dinners and photographed around town. On Jan 13 1915 they shipped out on the White Star liner Megantic, heading for Liverpool. When they arrived nine days later they were the focus of more celebrations and meetings with dignitaries. Finally on Jan 31 1915, 43 days after leaving Japan, they left London on a train to Netley, England to start their work with war wounded.

RICHARD STERN
German Jewish soldier, was awarded the prestigious Iron Cross in 1917. During the 1930s he was photographed boldly wearing his Iron Cross as he confronted Nazi paramilitary units (SA) who had come to enforce the boycott of his shop. Stern was arrested, but managed to escape and eventually made his way to America. During WW II he donated his now-infamous Iron Cross to a scrap-metal drive so it could be melted down for ammunition. Though he was already forty years of age, he joined the US Army and earned a Silver Star, America’s third highest medal for bravery, for gallantry in Italy.

Okay so I've been informed that this is super cool and should be shared so please behold my Great Grandfather's helmet from WWI (my OTHER great grandfather, not the one who was mustard gassed and had perminant laryngitis as a result)
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
This helmet was painted in 1918 by a French woman for my Great Grandad before he went into the trenches. It's an oil painting, and the woman who did it probably only charged about 50¢-$1, just as a way to make some money and as a way to send the men into battle with something beautiful and unique. The kicker is, my great Gramps caught Spanish Flu before he could actually see any action, and was sent home to either recover or die. He survived, but because of his short deployment the helmet and the painting done to it survived in near perfect condition too.
Tumblr media
Whoever the woman was who painted the helmet was a master at her art, and not only is it incredibly detailed but she used the three dimensional surface to full effect, taking the brim of the helmet to make a horizon line for the sunset over the water. And she gave it texture and details that would make Bob Ross proud.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
It's 103 years old this year :)
(and yes, the impasto (texture) of the painting feels EXACTLY like how you think it does lol)

Mind in No Man’s Land... Viktor and Elsa in the early 1920s. Just a little vignette, originally on Patreon.  It’s been pretty impossible to keep up with the comic with the animated film, kickstarter and patreon obligations stacked up. I have to squeeze in some opportunities to scratch that comic-making itch somehow. (The animated film is a finite thing and the comic will be back, by the way...everything is just more than I can handle at the moment, and I am deeply sorry about that.) ------------------------------- Lackadaisy is on Patreon - there’s extra stuff!

No male WWI pinups exist yet so my gay ass decided to change that at 1 AM and I ended up looking like a propaganda poster with homoerotic undertones so

One of HMS Repulse's mascots. A cat named either 'Ginger' or 'Sandy' lays in a specially made hammock. C. 1914
By the way do you know how ship cats were called by the crew of a ship ? Long-tailed beggar.
