This year our elegant Drawing Room decorations represent the Red Cross Pearl Sale, one of the loveliest examples of people coming together to raise money for those injured in the war.
Lady Ada Fairfax Lucy was among many aristocratic women to donate a pearl to the Red Cross, which soon received donations from all walks of life.
In 1918, 3,597 pearls were donated.
41 pearl necklaces sold at auction...
£84,383 raised for the injured.
The numbers demonstrate the inspiring determination of a nation; our Drawing Room tells the story of a mother doing her bit for the war effort.
💫The house is now open every day till Christmas Eve! If you’re visiting us on either a Saturday or Sunday, tickets must be pre-booked before the day .

This stunning portrait of two recipients of the Infantry Assault Badge and Black Wound badge. Probably taken in 1944. Who knows what the fate of these two soldiers would have been.

French soldiers march across the Rhine River into Germany in a photo likely taken in either 1918 or 1919.

Like the British, the French marched into Germany at the start of December 1918 to begin their own occupation of the country. Initially the occupying force consisted of the Eighth and Tenth Armies, but these were eventually combined on October 21, 1919 to form the French Army of the Rhine. When they first marched into Germany the French established headquarters in the Saarland and Palatinate regions of the country, but the main HQ was located in Mainz, 27.7 miles southwest of Frankfurt. At its peak in January 1920, the French Army of the Rhine occupied an area that accounted for 75% of the entire area of Germany under Allied occupation, and as many as 250,000 French soldiers were serving occupational duties in that region.

Among these soldiers were as many as 25,000 troops from France’s African colonies, who were stationed in the occupation zone beginning in 1919. For the French, the deployment of colonial troops enabled a faster demobilization process of their Caucasian soldiers to assist the reconstruction effort at home. But to the German people, their presence was viewed as an extraordinary humiliation brought forth by the Allies on an already shamed nation. The phrases “Die Schwarze Schmach” (“The Black Shame”) and “Die Schwarze Schmach am Rhine” (“The Black Horror on the Rhine”) quickly spread throughout Germany by the beginning of the 1920s, emerging during the ill-fated, right-wing Kapp-Lüttwitz Putsch of March 1920.

Protests against colonial troops was at first scattered, but soon gained momentum, especially when rumors began to emerge that the soldiers were committing sexual crimes against German women. This concern soon morphed into hysteria, and the German press was quick to exploit it. By April 1920 this campaign of propaganda was even picked up in foreign media as well, which included Allied countries like the U.K. and U.S. Exactly how many rapes were committed by French colonial troops is unknown, however many historians believe the real figures were blown considerably out of proportion by the German right-wing press...[Continued ↓]

Unternehmen Seelöwe:
-
The Germans could not pull this off, heres why.
1. During the invasions of Denmark and Norway, neither of which were a) at war, or b) with any significant military force, the Kriegsmarine lost a heavy cruiser, 2 light cruisers, 10 destroyers, 4 submarines, and 21(!) transport ships. Both battleships were put out of action as well. This leaves the Germans with only half the Royal Navy’s strength in the North Sea alone, throw in the British Mediterranean fleet, and that falls to a quarter. Even if the RN takes no part in the battle, the German navy literally didn’t have enough ships for cross channel supply of an invasion force big enough to destroy Britain, and the British would know an attack is coming, unlike the Norwegians. Germany even still was crippled at Narvik.
2. An amphibious invasion takes years, not months to prepare. This is evident when the two biggest naval powers, accompanied by total air supremacy over the channel combined with cutting edge landing technology and a willing participant in the resistance groups planned Overlord for two years and still incurred massive losses. The Germans were using glorified rowboats and had no to seriously plan for an attack before France fell. The Germans had no experience either, meaning accidents and inefficiency would likely drown the invasion force before it even hit England.
3. The Germans needed five things for a successful invasion:
A) Win Air supremacy over the channel and at least air superiority over Britain itself. This was already impossible because the RAF was better, closer to home, and could build planes faster than the Luftwaffe.
B) Secure a mine free channel.
C) Somehow beat back the Royal Navy.
D) Build more ships than is possible under the German war economy to even ship over the men and supply needed to sustain an invasion force. Also invent a totally new landing craft in like two weeks.
E) Even if all those are somehow accomplished, then the German land forces have to actually beat the British land forces, who escaped at Dunkirk. The Germans biggest strength was its ability to surprise its enemy, there would be no such surprise here.

Can you believe I've had Clark, my #stoma #ileostomy for 13 weeks now? It's been a roller-coaster of a time (18 months) since I first started getting the symptoms of #ibd #ulcerativecolitis - drastic weight loss, multiple toilet visits and more. Finally diagnosed Friday 13th (yes really!) April 2018. Sadly, I had 4 major flare ups in 4 months due to the meds not working :-( had my stoma "created" on 11th September and am finding things a LOT easier, despite having had all of my colon/large intestine removed. In the new year I will be going back to my two loves - #judo and #reenacting #livinghistory as a #firstworldwar medical orderly.
