March 1, 1942 #OTD World War II: Meanwhile, at the Battle of Sunda Strait, Allied cruisers USS Houston and HMAS Perth intercepted a Japanese invasion force but were both sunk as they attacked; four Japanese transports and a minesweepers were sunk, but two of the transports were later refloated. Officially the Allied personnel killed during the battle included 696 members of the crew of Houston and 375 from Perth, including the captains of both vessels, Rooks and Waller.

On This Day in History - March 1, 1944

March 1, 1944 #OTD World War II: US fighter ace Lieutenant Charles F. Gumm (Pictured), with seven confirmed victories to his credit, was tragically killed when the engine of his P-51B Mustang fighter failed during take-off from RAF Boxted in Essex, England, United Kingdom. Rather than bailing out (which would inevitably lead to his crippled aircraft crashing into the little village of Nayland) he gallantly stayed in the cockpit long enough to glide it towards open ground. By that time he was too low to parachute, and his body was found by local villagers near the burning wreckage, he was 23 years old.

Roman city of Exeter

My hometown is Exeter in England, it was built in 55AD when the Romans drove out the native Britons from a settlement nearby and established a settlement there, back then the city was Isca Dumnoniorum. By 65AD the roman walls were built, these walls are still around today however the city has expanded beyond those walls now.. we not only have the roman walls but we have one out of 20 roman baths found in the UK. If you look carefully in the bottom photo you should be able to make out where the original roman settlement was due to the shape and the long road cutting across it which is the same as the settlement above.. this is because the centre of Exeter has been left pretty much unchanged when it comes to the roads.
