Handbags

So far I’ve been reading about fashionable clothing, but clothes often have friends called accessories. These can be all manner of handbags, hats, scarves, jewelry, and hosiery, ornamentation on clothing, and shoes. Accessories can make or break an outfit. This week I will be taking a closer look at some of these accessories starting with handbags.

Handbags are known by many names: handbag, bag, shoulder bag, clutch, pocket book and purse among many other names. The term “purse” was originally considered quite vulgar as it was used as a reference to female genitalia. It was considered quite an insult to call someone a purse. Likewise the term “bag” was also considered improper. The phrase “old bag” referred to a woman past her child bearing years. Both the terms purse and bag later were accepted as referring to women’s handbags and seem to have lost most of the negative connotations associated…

FEATURED BLOGGER REPORT: Home Front – Big Timber, Montana By Pacific Paratrooper #AceHistoryDesk reports

These two articles are from The Big Timber Pioneer newspaper, Thursday, August 30, 1945

Welcome to Big Timber

Prisoners Hanged

Ft. Leavenworth Prison Cemetery; By Gorsedwa, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/

Fort Leavenworth, Kan., Aug. 25 – The Army Saturday hanged 7 German prisoners-of-war in the Fort Leavenworth disciplinary barracks for the murder of a fellow prisoner whom they had accused of being a traitor to the Reich.

All 7 went to the gallows after receiving last rites of the Roman Catholic Church. They were executed for killing Werner Dreschler at the Papago Park, Arizona prisoner of war camp, March 13, 1944.

The hangings took less than three hours. The executions brought to 14 the total number of Nazi POW’s executed at Ft. Leavenworth during the last few weeks.

The 7 went to the gallows without showing any signs of emotion. They had signed statements admitting their guilt. Their defense was that they had read in German newspapers that they should put to death any German who was a traitor. At their trial they said Dreschler had admitted giving information of military value to their captures.


Sgt. Nat Clark was on Pioneer Mining Mission

313th Wing B-29 Base, Tinian – One of the 6th Bomb Group fliers who participated in the pioneer mining mission to northern Korean waters on 11 July was SSgt. Nathaniel B. Clark, son of Mr. & Mrs. J.F. Clark, Big Timber, MT. it was revealed here today with the lifting of censorship rules. He is a left blister gunner and by war’s end had flown 29 combat missions in the war against Japan.

On the longest mission of the war, to deny the use of the eastern Korean ports to the already partially blockaded Japanese, Sgt. Clark explained that the crews were briefed to fly 3,500 statute miles to their mine fields just south of Russia, and back to Iwo Jima where they would have to land for fuel. Then it was still 725 miles back to the Tinian base.

The flight was planned to take 16½ hours which in itself was not out of the ordinary, but the length of time the full mine load would be carried was a record 10 hours and 35 minutes.

Loading an aerial mine layer

The job called for hair-splitting navigation, Midas-like use of the available gas, penetration of weather about which little is known and finally a precision radar mine-laying run over a port whose defenses and very contours were not too well known.

“We sweated that one out from our briefing one morning until we landed back on Tinian almost 24 hours later.” Sgt. Clark recalled.

radar mine

One crew was forced to return to Okinawa because of engine trouble, but the other 5 on the pioneer flight landed within a few minutes of the briefed time. One landed at the exact briefed time. The closest call on gas was reported by the crew which landed with only 24 gallons left, scarcely enough to circle the field.

Harry Power Bushranger ~ Harry Power ~ Australian History

Kindness

Harry Power Bush ranger.
He was convicted at Salford, Lancashire on 31 August 1840, and was sentenced to transportation for 7 years to Australia for stealing a bridle and saddle, under the name of Henry Johnson, and adhered to that name until he became a ticket-of-leave man.
He was freed in 1848 and moved to Sydney. By now he was calling himself Harry Power.[citation needed]
Power, was engaged driving cattle all over this colony and New South Wales, and afterwards with Captain Denman’s party in exploring and cutting a track across the ranges. In a few years he became a splendid bushman, knowing almost every mile of the country. During all this time he appears to have been getting an honest living, even when he kept a horse yard at Geelong, which is ostensibly a respectable calling. One incident changed his whole career. He was riding one of his own…

#OnThisDay 29 years ago today, thousands of Iraqi Kurds were killed when their village of Halabja was gassed in the closing months of the Iran-Iraq War: Kurdish militants continued to attack the Iraqis throughout the war as the military struggled to push back the Iranians who had managed to invade Iraqi territory in 1982 #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Mar.16: #OnThisDay Twenty nine years ago when the Iran-Iraq War broke out in 1980, Kurdish separatists accepted Iranian arms and money and began to attack Iraqi forces in areas across northern Iraq: Kurdish militants continued to attack the Iraqis throughout the war as the military struggled to push back the Iranians who had managed to invade Iraqi territory in 1982, representing a threat to their areas. In 1988, Kurdish militant factions began aiding the Iranians to enter Iraqi territory from the north as part of a last-ditch offensive that they hoped will allow them to carve out their own turf #AceHistoryDesk reports

Summary: 29 years ago today, thousands of Iraqi Kurds were killed when their village of Halabja was gassed in the closing months of the Iran-Iraq War.

What: Mass killing of Kurds in chemical weapon attack

When: 16 March 1988

Where: Halabja, northern Iraq

What happened?

Seeing the threat forming inside their northern territory, then-President Saddam Hussein decided to take action, and began using chemical weapons against Iranian military formations who also possessed chemical weapons. In the ensuing violence, the village of Halabja, occupied by Iranian forces who began to withdraw in the face of Iraqi counterattacks, was subjected to a chemical weapon attack involving cyanide gas (a chemical agent in the Iranian arsenal). Over 3,000 Kurdish civilians died as a result.

What happened next?

In the immediate aftermath of the incident, the US government said that Iran was to blame and was responsible for the attack. Researchers and academics remained conflicted about who held ultimate responsibility, particularly as Washington later changed its mind and blamed the Iraqi Ba’athist regime as part of its campaign to rally public support against Iraqi President Saddam Hussein prior to the US military offensive to liberate Kuwait in 1991. Video footage from the time also appeared to show an F-4 Phantom, used by the Iranian regime, flying over Halabja.

However, whether the Iranians or the Iraqis were responsible, following the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq and the toppling of Saddam’s regime, senior Ba’ath regime official Ali Hassan Al-Majid, nicknamed “Chemical Ali”, was condemned to death by an Iraqi court in 2010 for the Halabja massacre. He was hanged on 25 January 2010, but Saddam himself was never charged with the offence.

Finding the Lost Ships

IHRA

Since 2017, R/V Petrel’s team has been locating wreckage of Japanese and American ships that were sunk during World War II. To date, 23 ships have been discovered, the most recent of which is the USS Hornet, the aircraft carrier from which the Doolittle Raid began. A reporter from CBS This Morning tagged along on the hunt for the USS Hornet, giving us an idea about the process behind finding one of these ships.
