In 1939, Britain, France, New Zealand and Australia declared war on Germany, two days after the Nazi invasion of Poland.

While out at sea a German U-boat sunk the passenger liner ‘Athenia’ which was transporting women and children to the United States. One-hundred and twelve people died.

And finally on this day in 1943 - British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery began the Allied invasion of the Italian peninsula, landing in Calabria.
