1949 New Zealand rugby union tour of South Africa

1949 saw the second full tour of South Africa by a representative New Zealand rugby union team. The All Blacks achieved a record of 13 wins, 7 losses and 4 draws, they lost the test series 4–0; the New Zealand union left Maori players out of the 30-man tour squad to meet apartheid conditions set by South Africa. "Johnny Smith, Ben Couch and Vincent Bevan... were not considered for the South African tour because they were Maori. All three would have otherwise gone to South Africa." Smith's official All Black profile now acknowledges "the unforgivable weakness shown by New Zealand rugby". As this tour took place, a simultaneous Australia tour to New Zealand led to the unusual situation of two All Black tests on 3 September 1949, in Durban and Wellington; the All Blacks lost both. One reason for New Zealand affording the Australian series test status was to allow Maori players excluded from South Africa to earn caps.

Blacknor Fort

Blacknor Fort is a 20th-century fort on the Isle of Portland, England. It is located at Blacknor Point on the western side of Portland, close to Weston village; the fortress was built in 1900-02 as a coastal defence overlooking Lyme Bay to defend Portland Harbour and the other naval institutions on the island. The fort was operational during both World Wars with two 9.2 inch guns. During World War 2, on the night of the 27 April 1944, the fort witnessed the Slapton Sands Massacre; as part of Exercise Tiger, United States soldiers were practicing landings at Slapton Sands when they were attacked by German E-Boats. The gunners at Blacknor Fort were ordered not to open fire for fear of hitting the Allied troops. More than 600 American soldiers and seamen drowned by the end of the night, many were pulled down by the weight of their own equipment; the fort was decommissioned in 1956 and is now owned and split into three separate properties, one of, built on top of one of the two gun emplacements. Two small gun emplacements and an observation post survive outside of the fort's perimeter on the cliff edge
