The inn sign of The Bullers Arms in Landrake with the Latin inscription Aquila non capit muscas meaning The eagle does not catch flies'. Eagles were considered majestic animals in ancient Rome while flies were considered insignificant and a nuisance. The proverb was used to imply that noble or important people of high rank did not have the time or patience to deal with insignificant matters. Photographer: Charles Woolf

Barrage Balloons over Falmouth, Cornwall. 1942 Featured August Print

Barrage Balloons over Falmouth, Cornwall. 1942

A view from a field of eleven or more barrage balloons tethered over Falmouth. Barrage balloons were bags partially filled with hydrogen and attached to a steel cable anchored either to the ground or large vehicles. The balloon could be raised or lowered to the desired altitude by means of a winch. The balloons denied low level airspace to enemy aircraft thereby decreasing their bombing accuracy and the risk of dive bombing. Photographer: Unknown
