Royal Marines Commandos board a Somalian whaler

Taken on 2011-11-28

Royal Navy and Royal Marines Commandos board a Somalian whaler suspected of being operated by pirates in the Indian Ocean off the Horn of Africa. Once at the scene, the helicopter identified two suspect vessels, a whaler and a skiff, in the vicinity of the fishing vessel. The faster of the two, a skiff, sped away at over 25 knots as the helicopter gave chase. When the skiff ignored orders to stop, a specially trained sniper onboard the Lynx helicopter fired warning shots ahead of the fleeing vessel which stopped and the suspected pirates onboard were then transferred to Fort Victoria via boat. Fort Victoria’s Royal Marines boarding team then boarded the whaler and another skiff in the vicinity. As a result of the day’s action, a total of seven suspected pirates were detained onboard Fort Victoria along with their whaler as evidence, with no injuries being sustained by either side.

Iraqi soldiers and U.S. Soldiers hold random security checks using an ADE 651 during a security checkpoint mission in Abu T'Shir, Iraq. Investigations by the BBC and other organisations found that the ADE 651 device is little more than a "glorified dowsing rod" with no ability to perform its claimed functions. In January 2010, export of the device was banned by the British government and the managing director of ATSC was arrested on suspicion of fraud.

Chinese and Malayan Girls Taken by the Japanese to Work as "Comfort Women", Andaman Islands, 1945

Taken on 1945-11-01

"The Japanese Army established the comfort stations to prevent venereal diseases and rape by Japanese soldiers, to provide comfort to soldiers and head off espionage. The comfort stations were not actual solutions to the first two problems, however. According to Japanese historian Yoshiaki Yoshimi, they aggravated the problems. Yoshimi has asserted, 'The Japanese Imperial Army feared most that the simmering discontentment of the soldiers could explode into a riot and revolt. That is why it provided women.'"
