CONVAIR B-58 HUSTLER

by Bill Holder

Unbelievably the supersonic B-58 bomber was designed in the late 1940s but the first flight of the prototype did not take place until late 1956. It would not look out of place in the 21st century and the delta-wing, Mach 2 Hustler had the performance of a fighter but its career was short due to technical problems and excessive costs. It was withdrawn in 1970 having only become operational in mid 1960. The basic design was intended to be truly multi-role with ECM, missile launching and even fighter-bomber versions planned.

WITH THE 1/5TH ESSEX IN THE EAST

by Lt.-Col. T. Gibbons


Unusually for a British service Battalion, the Fifth battalion of the Essex Regiment spent its entire Great War service in action against the Turks. It had a bloody baptism of fire when it was thrown into the inferno of Gallipoli in 1915, fighting in the trenches near Anzac Cove. The rest of its war was spent in Egypt, guarding the Suez Canal, and then in Gaza and Palestine, where the battalion formed part of Allenby's successful advance to capture Jerusalem and Damascus in 1918. A facsimile reprint of the 1921 original, illustrated by photographs, maps and accompanied by a Roll of Honour, this is a fine history.
