Findings at the Imperial War Museum

I visited the Imperial War Museum in London last Wednesday. Here are just a few of the things I saw.

Front Entrance

Near the front entrance there is a piece of the old Berlin Wall. This particular piece of graffiti was done by Jurgen Grosse aka "Indiano" in 1989.

This is an Argentine 20mm Anti-Aircraft twin gun. It has a 2178 tactical range and a 0.79" calibre, and requires three gunners. It was captured in by the British in 1982 during the Falklands war.

In 1941, Rudolf Hess took off in a Messerschmitt BF 110D to Scotland in order to negotiate peace with the British. This is the wreckage of the plane after it was shot down. (For more on Hess' experiences after his capture, I recommend "Hess, the Missing Years" by David Irving and "Hess, the British Conspiracy" by John Harris and M.J Trow.)

  1. Do I spy some usage of my photos? Love the background though! I'm going to take credit for helping to contribute to these workings, and there is nothing you can do about it.

  2. These photos were all mine, LIAR! Theyre screenshots of footage I took on my videocam.
    I will have you sued for defamation.
