Model Aviation. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 4 July 1914
Model Aviation. For the past few months on Satur day and Sunday afternoons the pub lic passing a vacant block of land at the corner of Barkly and Dickens streets, St. Kilda, have been witness ing some fine flights made by model aeroplanes, designed and constructed by two young men, Messrs. Braith waite and Nutting. The framework of the models is built of light strip wood, and piano wire bound with thread, wings and elevators being covered with doped silk, while the power used for driving same is strip elastic. The record flight was made when one of the models flew about 200 yards, rising during the flight to a height of nearly 60 feet, and descend ing gradually, made a landing reminil cent of Harry Hawker at Caulfield. To be up-to-date the models are made to loop the loop, which can be done by a few necessary adjustments by the aviators, which performance appeals to the interested and appre ciative group of onlopkers. Messrs. Braithwaite and Nutting state that they have intentions o...

CHARLES I.'s LAST BATTLE. On June 14, 1645, at Naseby, a vil lage near Market Harborough, in Northamptonshire, Charles I. fought the last-. battle in 'which he engaged against his Parliament, for, partly owing to the rashness of his im petuous nephew, Prince Rupert, he there received a decisive defeat from the: .forces commanded by Oliver Cromwell: and Lord Thomas Fairfax. The King's forces, consisting of about 3,500 infantry and 4,000 caval ry, were far outnumbered by the Parliamentary army, which included 14,000 men, who were, moreover, carefully trained, long accustomed to victory, and wild and fierce with re ligious and political enthusiasm. Fairfax assigned his right wing to Cromwell and the left to Henry Ire ton, commanding the centre himself. Notwithstanding their inferiority in numbers, it was the Royalist army that commenced the. attack, Rupert rushed to the charge with 1,000 cav alry, routing and pursuing for a long distance Ireton's division, but con s:equently too late t...

It wasl evening, and a ab9O enging the stationmaster's offictee, said that a most unsavory tramp was making himself comfortable on the lounge of the first-class waiting-room, monopo lising it, as though intending to oc cupy it for the night. The slation master called, a porter, :nd directed him to eii:et-t '- unmwelcome visitor; tramps and their tricks were especial ly obnoxious in that quarter.

INTERESTING HISTORICAL EVENTS. THE GALLOP FROM QUATRE BRAS TO WATERLOO. On June 17, 18!5, Wellington gave orders for his army to leave its po sition at Quatre Bras and retire to the ridge in front' of waterloo, which seemed (and which subsequently proved to be) the best defensive po. sition for covering Brussels and a waiting Blucher's arrival. Lord Ux bridge and his cavalry were instruct ed to cover the retreat, which was so skilfully effected that when Na poleon learnt of the movement-from a prisoner captured by his yedettes- the bulk of the.Britisi army had. al. ready left, and the horsemen alone remained. Napoleon, who hlid hoped to head off the ihole British army and cut. its communications -.with •3Brssels, resolved at least to endeav our to- capture this mounted rear guard. Followed by his cavalry and horse.artilnery; he personally led the pursuit. It was 2 p.m., and the i heavy clouds northwards ainounced a coming storm, when Uxbridge saw .the silhouette of Napoleon and his ...

JOYS OF CARAVANNING. Poqr-Connie has had a most try ing experience. She went yesterday' to have a bath in her tent, leaving all her clothes in thd caravan with me. She had laid them in the locker overnight, but I didn't know it, and finding that we wanted groceries from the nearest town - six miles off - I being up and dressed, called Robert to put George into the shafts and Sdrive me there. I called out to Con nie, "Connie, you go . on with your bath, and I'll fetch the food, We'll bie back in about three hours or less.' Connie's face appeared at the laced up door of the tent, and she nodded, blissIully unconscious that she was indeed destined to "go on with her l:ath'" for about six solid hours.
