ploughshare

Photographed in a back lane at Potamos1983. How was it used was the question I asked myself at the time? Now I know as J.M. Koksma's black and white picture of "Ploughing, Kythera 1962" submitted 15-02-2014, shows clearly how these cleverly constructed ploughshares were employed.

The Antikythera mechanism on display at the Nicholson Museum,

...Sydney University, during the talk delivered by Professor Robert Hannah on the evening of Thursday 26th November, 2009.

“The model of the Antikythera mechanism was designed in 1989 by Dr Allan Bromley, who was an Associate Professor in the Basser Department of Computer Science, at the University of Sydney. It demonstrates the complexity of the gears and the dials of the mechanism that manoeuvred the upper cycle of the 19 year calendar, and the lower cycles used to predict solar and lunar eclipses. The recent research of Allan’s collaborator, Michael Wright, has advanced the understanding of the mechanism, beyond that inherent in this model.

The model was made by Frank A Percival, and is on loan from the estate of Dr Allan G Bromley. It has very rarely been put on public display.”

From the Life in Australia panel.

Letter of loyalty and support from Greek-Australians for the Australian-British Empire war effort, 1915.

The letter reads:

In the event of Greece going against England and the Allies, we, the undersigned, hereby agree to contribute the whole of our profits to the Red Cross Society as long as the war lasts, or even, the whole business concern, on the understanding that they will be handed back to us at the end of the war.

Greece, with a "German" monarch, was very ambivalent about its allegiances during the early part of WW1. This generated suspicion amongst Australians, and the citizens of other countries deeply loyal to Great Britain. The letter above was designed to assuage these "suspicions".

USS Kithira ship's patch

This object is a woven cloth patch, about 4 inches across. It purports to be a "ship's patch" belonging to the US Navy ship Kithira, and was presumably sewn onto the sleeve of a seaman's fatigues. The motto, "Wasted Days & Wasted Nights", is, to say the least, strange for a fighting (?) ship. The whole thing may be a spoof, but I doubt anyone would go to such lengths for no very good reason. I came across it on eBay, where it was being offered as part of a larger collection of "Squadron Patches".

If it is indeed authentic, it would be interesting to find out more about the USS Kithira. A first internet search failed to come up with anything. Does anyone know anything further about this ship and its history?
