ON THIS DAY

IT’S DAY 335 OF 2015

Daily Mail - - Front Page -

IN 1986 the Dutch Am­bas­sador to the UK, Rein Huy­de­coper, trav­elled to the Isles of Scilly to for­mally sign an of­fi­cial peace treaty be­tween the Is­lands and the King­dom of the Nether­lands. They had tech­ni­cally been at war with each other for 335 years — but no one re­alised un­til a lo­cal his­to­rian called Roy Dun­can dis­cov­ered the over­sight. A RASH of tor­na­does in the south-east­ern U.S. claimed 335 lives on April 27, 2011 — the dead­li­est sin­gle day in U.S. tor­nado his­tory.
