Off north-west Ireland, German submarine U-39 attacks British carrier Ark Royal, but its torpedoes miss. Escorting destroyers use depth charges to force U-39 to the surface and the crew of 44 men is taken prisoner. This was the first German submarine to be lost in the war.

80 years ago, German tanks had reached the outskirts of Warsaw, but after heavy fighting were thrown back. Where the Poles were able to concentrate their forces, such as during the Bzura counter-offensive, they inflicted significant losses on the enemy.

1000 shells (average) per 1 M sq of front line. 15-25% fail rates. 150-250 UXB (potentially) per M Sq over 440 Miles x depth of Western Front. Ergo images are a drop in the ocean.

Found out from a mate in Belfast that the Titanic museum starts with a guide saying "just letting you know, there was nothing wrong with it when it left us" Now that's funny
