World War I spy drawing Featured Print

World War I spy drawing

What appears to be an innocent landscape drawing is in fact a plan of a harbour and its forts. The sketch has been made in accordance with a secret pictorial code known to the government in whose interest they were spying. In this code a windmill for example, would represent a lighthouse; a plantation of trees, a fort; a single farmhouse or cottage, a group of buildings; a group of houses, a town; a church, Admiralty offices or a Town Hall and double lines (ostensibly roads), railway tracks. In the image below, the innocent landscape has been decoded by the enemy for whom the drawing was made Date: 1914

German WWII ramjet engine blueprint

German WWII ramjet engine blueprint. This design, for the propulsor ramjet engine to be mounted on top of a Dornier Do 217 E-2 heavy bomber, dates from 1942. This and similar designs were developed during World War II by the Austrian-German aerospace engineer Eugen Sanger (1905-1964) and the German engineer Irene Bredt (1911-1983). Their work on jet propulsion and ramjet engines was intended to enable German bombers to reach the USA. The project was known as the Amerika Bomber, and was later named the Sanger-Bredt Antipodal Bomber'. None of the designs ever saw action before the end of the war. The text labels are in French
