An Eagle without a history.
Mr. Ramshaw, the famous eagle belonging to Capt. C.R.W. Knight has arrived in London after the most eventual journey in its celebrated life. Capt. Knight and the eagle were on board the evacueed ship when it was torpeded in the Atlantic, and after being transferred to destroyer, they eventually arrived back at a Northern port. Capt. Knight and his eagle were in Arras when the Germans caused a hurried evacuation, so that this remarkable bird is adding still further chapters to its remarkable history.
