Special Collections, Heritage and Archives, and the Battleship Texas Foundation

A collaborative online exhibition created by Battleship Texas Foundation, Jonathan Rayner in the School of English and the University's Special Collections, Heritage and Archives

Cover of The War Illustrated magazine Vol 6 Number 133

To mark the 80th anniversary of Operation Torch in WW2 we have launched a collaborative online exhibition.

The exhibition features digitised pages of the British War Illustrated magazine held by the university in the War Magazines Collection which document when the battleship USS Texas went to war and travelled west for a second time. 

To find out more, you can read about Jonathan's experience on the School of English blog. You can explore the exhibition on Battleship Texas, Operation Torch.

If you are interested in seeing the War Magazine Collection in person, or any other collection held at the university, you can book an appointment to visit our Reading Room. More information can be found on the Use Our Collections web page.
