USS Juneau discovered: The five brothers who went down together with the sunken battleship
The USS Juneau is the latest Second World War wreck to be discovered by a team funded by billionaire Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen. The discovery on March 17 locates another mass grave of American servicemen, as only 10 of its almost 700-strong crew survived its sinking during the Battle of Guadalcanal in 1942. Among the hundreds who went down with the ship were five brothers, the Sullivans, who had insisted on serving together despite US military policies designed to avoid multiple losses to a single family. The story of the siblings had a profound effect on the American public and prompted the implementation of the Sole Survivor Policy, which led to the events that the film Saving Private Ryan is based on. The Sullivans have since been feted in the US as “epitomising the service and sacrifice of our nation’s greatest generation”. The brothers and the other sailors on the USS Juneau gave their lives in the bloody efforts to wrestle the Solomon Islands from Japanese Imperial control and was the first time the Allies mounted a successful assault on Japan’s Pacific empire. Prelude to the battle The Battle of Guadalcanal came as the Allies finally managed to check Imperial Japan’s all-conquering advance in the Pacific. Since the surprise attack at Pearl Harbour in December 1941, Japanese forces had swept all before them and by the following spring were threatening to attack mainland Australia. The US Navy ship sunk by the Japanese torpedoes 76 years ago was found in the South Pacific Credit: Paul Allen In May 1942 Japan launched a two-pronged assault to capture Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Island of Tulagi, which would have put land-based Japanese bombers in range of northern Australia. However by this time the Allies had partially cracked the Japanese communication codes and a Australian-American naval force managed to stymie the invasion of Port Moresby at the Battle of the Coral sea, although the Japanese were able to maintain a foothold in the Solomon Islands. A month later the Allies inflicted a crippling blow on the hitherto undefeated Japanese navy at the Battle of Midway, cleared the way for an assault to roll back the imperial presence in the Pacific. Battle of Guadalcanal In August 1942 an Allied force lead by the US invaded the Solomon Islands of Tugali, Guadalcanal and Florida. As well as nixing the Japanese threat to Allied supply lines, the capture of the islands was intended to provide a launch pad for an assault on the main Japanese naval base in the theatre, Rabaul, on New Britain. The battle on the islands lasted for months and involved numerous naval and air engagements as well as invasions and counter invasions of the archipelago. The Japanese did not relinquish their attempts to retake Guadalcanal until February 1943. USS Juneau wreck discovery map It was in November that the USS Juneau was downed while escorting US reinforcements headed for Guadalcanal, just more than a year after it had been launched. The Atlantic-Class light cruiser, which was named after the city of Juneau in Alaska, was attacked with its convoy by 30 Japanese aircraft while unloading at the island and managed to shoot down six enemy torpedo bombers in the exchange. The US convoy was then attacked by a larger Japanese naval force and the the Juneau was hit by a torpedo in the side, causing the vessel to list. It then forced to withdraw with two other damaged cruisers, the Helena and the San Francisco. As they made their way from the battle a Japanese destroyer launched two torpedoes intended for the San Francisco, but they missed and one hit the Juneau in the hole where the previous torpedo had struck. The impact caused a huge explosion which split the Juneau in two and sank it in under a minute. Most of the vessel’s more than 680 crew were killed in the explosion, but around 100 survived. However fearing further attack and wrongly assuming there were no survivors, the Helena and San Francisco fled. One of the Sullivan brothers was rumoured to be among the survivors left in the water for eight days before another ship came to rescue them. Neither were among the 10 survivors eventually pulled from the water. The 'Fighting Sullivan Brothers' The five Sullivan brothers enlisted together at a US Navy recruiting station in Iowa on 3 January 1942 but tragically none would ever return from the war. Upon signing up, the close-knit brothers insisted on serving together on the same ship and were assigned to USS Juneau throughout its deployment in the South Pacific. The wreckage from the USS Juneau was found off the coast of the Solomon Islands Credit: Paul Allen US Navy policy, although never strongly enforced, was to separate family members following the death of three brothers on the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor in 1941, although the Sullivans persisted and their request was approved. Ten months after signing up, four of the brothers were killed in the initial explosion after Juneau was struck on the port side by a torpedo launched by Japanese destroyer Amatsukaze. The eldest of the brothers, 27-year-old George Thomas, who was wounded the night before Juneau was sunk, made it onto a raft. He is believed to have survived for five days in the water but would eventually succumb to either his wounds and exhaustion or a shark attack. Legacy The Sullivans - George Thomas, Francis "Frank" Henry, Joseph "Joe" Eugene, Madison "Matt" Abel and Albert "Al" Leo - were revered and honoured as war heroes, all posthumously receiving Purple Heart Medals. While their deaths became a rallying cry for the Allies, it also brought into focus US Navy policy regarding family members serving together at sea. While involuntary separation was considered, no such law has ever been enacted. Wreckage from the USS Juneau Credit: Paul Allen The deaths of the Sullivans and the Borgstrom brothers, four siblings killed during six months fighting in the Second World War, lead to the implementation of the Sole Survivor Policy which protects families who have already lost family members in combat. Steven Spielberg’s Second World War epic Saving Private Ryan, in which a band of US soldiers is sent to bring back the sole surviving brother of four, James Ryan, from the battle in Normandy, also references the Sullivan brothers in one scene. Mr Spielberg later thanked the Sullivan family in his 1999 Oscars acceptance speech. Two US Navy destroyers - the DD-537 and DDG-68 - were also named The Sullivans in honour of the brothers, with motto is "We stick together". Vice Adm. Rich Brown, fifth commanding officer of USS The Sullivans (DDG 68), said he was “excited” about the discovery of Juneau. “The story of the USS Juneau crew and Sullivan brothers epitomise the service and sacrifice of our nation’s greatest generation,” he said. “I had the opportunity to visit The Sullivans earlier this month and I can tell you the fighting spirit of the Sullivan brothers lives on through the fantastic crew that mans the ship today. The crew embodies the ship’s motto, ‘We Stick Together’ each day. “My time on The Sullivans and the relationship I formed with the ship’s sponsor, Kelly, the granddaughter of Albert, are some of my most cherished memories.” President Roosevelt and Pope Pius XII were among those who sent a letter of condolence to their parents and a museum built in their honour was opened in their hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, in 2008. Paul Allen’s mission to find WW2 wrecks Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has funded several high-profile shipwreck exploration projects, including the discovery of the Second World War aircraft carrier, the USS Lexington, earlier this month. WWII ship USS Juneau located by #RVPetrel on St. Patrick’s Day—unexpected coincidence since she is best known for the Sullivans, all 5 brothers were lost, along with the other 682 sailors. Only 10 survived the sinking by Japanese torpedoes. https://t.co/FOkRwR6FXcpic.twitter.com/1PZjNP1uHd— Paul Allen (@PaulGAllen) March 19, 2018 The 65-year-old, one of the world’s richest men, called locating USS Juneau on St. Patrick’s Day an “unexpected coincidence” given the family’s Irish heritage. Allen, whose father served in the US Army, has been “fascinated” with Second World War history since his youth and has helped uncover various vessels sunk during the global conflict. His team located the enormous Japanese warship Musashi in 2015 and helped retrieve the ship’s bell from the British battlecruiser HMS Hood in 2015. Underwater wrecks discovered by Paul Allen The USS Lexington, or “Lady Lex”, was discovered in deep waters 500 miles off Australia’s north-east coast on 4 March. “As Americans, all of us owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who served and who continue to serve our country for their courage, persistence and sacrifice,” said Mr Allen.

Collector who bought Jesse James picture for just £7 on eBay told it could be worth £2 million
A collector has hit the jackpot after being told that an old photograph he picked up on eBay for just £7 was a genuine portrait of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James, worth up to £2 million. Justin Whiting, 45, bought the photograph in July 2017 and immediately tracked down Will Dunniway, a 19th century photography expert from California. He was astonished when forensic experts confirmed his picture of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James was genuine and could sell for six figures. Single Justin, from Spalding, Lincs., said: "Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few quid, like other people would buy a lottery ticket. "I noticed the picture for sale - it was ten dollars. It was a bit blurry on the site but when I got it, it was a lot clearer. "I thought to myself: 'Gee wizz, this could be a real photo!' I've been obsessed with American outlaws for years and read lots of books and study their faces. Justin Whiting's photo of Jesse James (right) and an existing picture of the outlaw at a similar age Credit: Justin Whiting / SWNS.com "The picture was identical to the one in my book, except it was full length. All my friends said it was the same but I knew I needed to contact experts. "I didn't dare to believe they would say it was genuine and worth at least two million." Expert Mr Dunniway confirmed the photograph was a genuine portrait of bank robber Jesse taken when the babyfaced outlaw was just 14. His report said: "The age of this image was about 1861-2 and is correct in every way to this period. "When it is compared to the much used comparison image I believe it was taken on the same day by the same photographer. "It is very evident by the face, hair cut, jacket, shirt and tie that this is the same image of Jesse James at 14 years old. One of the originals." The eBay listing from which Justin Whiting picked up an old photo Credit: Justin Whiting / SWNS.com Justin then sent the 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches Victorian tintype photograph to Los Angeles forensic expert Kent Gibson who has verified evidence for the FBI. Mr Gibson confirmed the image was authentic and said: "All power to Justin. An authentic photograph of outlaw Billy the Kid sold for $5million in 2015 so the sky's the limit. "Jesse James is a very famous outlaw so this is obviously a valuable image." Justin, who has been out of work since 2003 due to back problems, has already been in touch with posh London auction house Christie's and is looking forward to spending his windfall. He said: "I'm definitely selling it. I'll be able to buy my own house and my own car. I can't wait. Good things do happen sometimes." Jesse may have robbed a few banks in his time, but Justin isn't taking any chances with his haul. He said: "I'm being super careful. That photograph is the most valuable thing I've ever had in my possession. It's staying in my friend's safe for now."

Jeremy Corbyn mocked by his own MPs after claiming Russia should be given the right to test nerve agent itself
Jeremy Corbyn has been mocked by own MPs after saying Russia should be given a sample of the nerve agent used in the Salisbury attack so it can "say categorically one way or the other" whether it is responsible. The Labour leader also said he would be happy to work with President Putin if he was Prime Minister and stopped short of blaming the Kremlin for the attack, despite his deputy John McDonnell doing so over the weekend. It exposes a deepening split in the party's position on the nerve agent attack which has left Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in a coma in hospital. Last week Mr Corbyn was criticised for refusing to categorically blame Russia for the Novichok poisoning and his communications chief drew further ire when he claimed British intelligence cannot be trusted after the Iraq war dossier. Responding to his latest remarks on the issue Mr Corbyn was roundly mocked by his own MPs including Ian Austin, a member of the Foreign Affairs select committee, who joked that Mr Putin would never accuse himself of having smuggled the nerve agent into the UK to use against the former spy. He said: "Does anyone seriously think Putin will say: ‘Thanks for the sample. We have now examined it and yes, I'm sorry to say that it did come from Russia and was then given to one of our agents to murder Mr Skripal in the way we have murdered lots of other opponents’? Who thinks that?” Russian spy poisoning | Read more Speaking to the BBC's World and One programme Mr Corbyn said: "All fingers point towards Russia's involvement in this, and obviously the manufacture of the material was undertaken by the Russian state originally. "What I'm saying is the weapons were made from Russia, clearly. "I think Russia has to be held responsible for it but there has to be an absolutely definitive answer to the question where did the nerve agent come from? I asked the Russians be given a sample so that they can say categorically one way or the other." In a move that is likely to spark further frustration among Labout MPs Mr Corbyn maintained there had to be a relationship with Russia and said he would still "do business" with president Putin if Labour came to power. Corbyn or the Russian Embassy | Who said what "Would I do business with Putin, sure? And I'd challenge him on human rights in Russia, challenge him on these issues and challenge him on that whole basis of that relationship," he said. John Woodcock, chair of Labour's backbench foreign affairs committee, warned allowing Russia to test the poison would be "like saying you trust the fairness of Putin's re-election because he told you it was fine". He added: "Russia denies every single assassination attempt on foreign soil, no matter how blatant. "In what parallel universe would we think sending Putin's regime a sample of their poison would lend more credibility to this latest denial?" It came as Theresa May chaired a meeting of the National Security Council to discuss additional sanctions on Russia after the Kremlin ejected 23 British diplomats from the country. 23 Russian officials, thought to be undeclared spies, left the UK today. The Prime Minister told the meeting: "There are other measures that government and security officials are actively considering and stand ready to deploy at any time." She revealed action has been taken at the UK border to beef up visa checks, particularly for private flights, and amendments to the sanctions and money laundering bill are also taking shape. A spokesman for Mrs May said: "The Prime Minister reiterated that we will freeze Russian state assets wherever we have evidence that they may threaten UK persons or property. And, led by the National Crime Agency, we will continue to bring all the capabilities of the UK law enforcement to bear against serial criminals and corrupt elites."

Ukrainian pilot blamed for MH17 'kills himself'
A Ukrainian pilot falsely accused by Russia of shooting down the MH17 airliner has reportedly taken his own life. Capt Vladyslav Voloshyn, an SU-25 attack jet pilot, shot himself at home in the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv on Monday, local media reported. Voloshyn, 29, had been working at Mykolaiv airport since he retired from the airforce. He previously flew 33 combat missions in an SU-25 during the war between Ukrainian and Russian and separatist forces in Donbas in 2014. Russian media and officials had accused him of shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The Boeing 777 was en route from Amterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was blown out of the sky over eastern Ukraine in July 2014, with the loss of all 298 people on board. A Telegraph investigation backed claims the jet was shot down by a surface to air missile fired from territory controlled by Russian-backed separatists Credit: DIMITAR DILKOFF A Dutch led investigation has concluded that MH17 was shot down by a surface to air missile fired from territory controlled by Russian-backed separatists - a conclusion backed by an independent investigation carried out by the Telegraph. The claims that Voloshyn downed the jet with his own aircraft was one of a number of alternative explanations put forward by the Kremlin and its sympathisers. The accusations were taken up by Russia's Investigative Committee after Komsomolskaya Pravda, a pro-Kremlin tabloid, published an interview with a former Ukrainian airforce mechanic called Yevgeny Agapov who claimed Voloshyn had been on a mission when MH17 was downed and returned to base looking shaken. An image from the final report into the investigation of the explosion on Boeing 777 flight MH17 Credit: Dutch Safety Board/PA He always denied the allegation, saying he was the victim of a smear campaign. Ukrainian police said they are treating his death as suicide but that it was being investigated under the premeditated murder article of the country's criminal code. Volshyn's wife said she called an ambulance after hearing gunshots at their home, but paramedics were unable to save him. The Kremlin continues to publicly deny culpability for shooting down MH17, despite overwhelming evidence that the Buk missile used came from Russia.
