ON THIS DAY, April 2 1917: 🗓️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Private Jørgen Christian Jenson earned the Victoria Cross at Noreuil. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎖️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Private Jensen took charge of five men and attacked a barricade behind which were 40-50 Germans operating a⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ machine gun. After one of his men shot down the German gunner Private Jensen rushed the whole post singlehanded and threw a bomb in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He had still a bomb in one hand and taking another from his pocket he drew the pin with his teeth. Threatening the Germans with two bombs, he called on them, in German, to surrender and bluffed them that they were surrounded by Australians. 🇦🇺⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The enemy dropped their rifles and gave in. Private Jensen then sent a German to tell another enemy party to surrender and they too gave in. A different party of our men then saw these Germans for the first time and began firing on them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At considerable risk, Private Jensen stood up on the barricade, waved his helmet, and sent the German prisoners back to Australian lines under an escort of lightly wounded men.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Swipe Right ➡ to see the full image. The City Palace in Jaipur is well known for its intricate designed Gates. The Lotus Gate in the southwest is adorned with dramatic lotus petals and flower patterns. The palaces and their structures fascinate me. They represent a bygone era, which is impossible to replicate in present times. The designs speak the imagination and dedication of the person responsible for designing such masterpieces. #citypalace #rajasthan #royal #travelphotography #Travel #travelgram #royalpalace #palace #kings #royalfamily #jaipur #pinkcity #decorative #intricate #inspiration #design #walldecor #wallpainting #gate #decorativegate #historychannel #historychannelindia #historyfacts

The Last Post... As Australians, it's a tune we've known since we were kids. But do you know its origin? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎺👇⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "In military tradition, the Last Post is the bugle call that signifies the end of the day's activities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the evening, a duty officer had to do the rounds of his unit's position. The "first post" was sounded when he started his rounds.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another bugle call was sounded when the officer's party completed its rounds, reaching the "last post" – this signalled that the night sentries were alert at their posts and gave one last warning to the other soldiers.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Last Post was eventually incorporated into funeral and memorial services as a final farewell, and symbolises the duty of the dead is over and they can rest in peace."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎺🕊️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - Australian War Memorial 🇦🇺🇦🇺

Alaska was formally transferred to the United States on October 18, 1867, through a treaty ratified by the United States Senate and signed by President Andrew Johnson. The US $7.2 million check used to pay for Alaska (roughly $109 million in 2018). The purchase added 586,412 square miles (1,518,800 km2) of new territory to the United States for the cost of $7.2 million. Or 2 cents per acre. Reactions to the purchase in the United States were mostly positive, as many believed possession of Alaska would serve as a base to expand American trade in Asia. #history #historyofart #HistoryNerd #historyinpictures #historylover #historybuff #HistoryInTheMaking #historychannel #historyvikings #HistoryLesson #historygeek #historymemes #historymade #HistoryMuseum #historychannelindia #historytv18india #historytv18 #historylovers #HistoryMakers #history4u #historytour #historybooks #HIStoryEra #historybook #historyplace #HistoryMaker #historyearned #historyteacher #historyphoto #historyclass

A PORTRAIT & A CONDOM John Joffany as an artist was quirky, there is a story that he got shipwrecked while returning from India and to survive he had to eat his fellow traveller, and that person was chosen through lottery. Though the story of the cannibalism couldn't be confirmed. He was notoriuos for surreptously adding messages unwanted in his painting. Like here in this self portrait there is allegation that a condom is seen hanging from the wall! Yes even then condoms used to exist, though the contraceptive was way different than the latex one one of our time.... . . . . . #indianmodernart #Indianart #JohanZoffany #colonialart #colonialindia #arthistory #orientalart #discoveryindia #painting #art #museumfromhome #discoveryindia #historychannelindia #historychannel #artandculure #vogueindia #incredibleindia

Colonel Mordaunt's Cock Fight. one of the most interesting painting of 18th century colonial India by Zoffany. the life of the Colonialist and Indians were not that watertightly demarked, so there was much more mixing than that of 19th Century. . . . . #indianmodernart #Indianart #JohanZoffany #colonialart #colonialindia #arthistory #orientalart #discoveryindia #painting #art #museumfromhome #discoveryindia #historychannelindia #historychannel #artandculure #vogueindia #incredibleindia

Johan Zofanny, One of the most fascinating painter who came to India in late 18th Century. There are myths and stories around him and though mostly an academic painter his work has some historical value.... . . . . #indianmodernart #Indianart #JohanZoffany #colonialart #colonialindia #arthistory #orientalart #discoveryindia #painting #art #museumfromhome #discoveryindia #historychannelindia #historychannel #artandculure #vogueindia #incredibleindia

Found! Paigah Palace that was built post the giving away of the majestic Falknuma palace by sir Viqar Ul Umrah a Paigah nobleman, to the sixth Nizam of the Hyderabad state, Mahbub Ali Khan Asaf Jah VI. He had built this palace for his wife Shahzadi Jahandarunissa Begum. It's one of the three palaces of Aiwan-e-Viqar with the other two being the Mardana Mahal and Viqar Manzil overlooking the Hussain Sagar. Found because last time I tried visiting it, was told this is a 'Marriage palace'! . . . . . #Hyderabad . #history #historyofHyderabad #HistoryNerd #historyinpictures #historylover #historybuff #HistoryInTheMaking #historychannel #historyvikings #HistoryLesson #historygeek #historymemes #historymade #HistoryMuseum #historychannelindia #historytv18india #historytv18 #historylovers #HistoryMakers #history4u #historytour #historybooks

John Dee performing an alchemical display for Queen Elizabeth. Behind him, to the far right, sits Edward Kelley with his famous ear-covering cap. Apparently he had his ears cut off as a punishment for forgery. . . . . . 8 #History #historyofart #HistoryNerd #historyinpictures #historylover #historybuff #HistoryInTheMaking #historychannel #historyvikings #HistoryLesson #historygeek #historymemes #historymade #historytv18india #historytv18 #historychannelindia #HistoryMuseum #historylovers #HistoryMakers #history4u #historytour #historybooks #HIStoryEra #historybook #HistoryMaker #historyplace #historyearned #historyteacher #historyphoto #historyclass
