The UK's first airborne assault took place on 10 February 1941, when, what was then known as II Special Air Service (40 men of 500 trained in parachuting), introduced themselves to the enemy by jumping into Italy and blowing up an aqueduct in a daring raid named Operation Colossus..After the German's successful invasion of Crete, it was agreed by the British Chiefs of Staff that the UK would need far more for similar operations..No. 2 Commando Were tasked with specialising in airborne assault and became the nucleus of the Parachute Regiment...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rej-DRF1jIs

Paralysis is loss of muscle function for one or more muscles. Paralysis can be accompanied by a loss of feeling (sensory loss) in the affected area if there is sensory damage as well as motor.. About 1 in 50 people have been diagnosed with some form of paralysis, transient or permanent.. The word comes from the Greek παράλυσις, "disabling of the nerves", itself from παρά (para), "beside, by" and λύσις (lysis), "loosing" and that from λύω (luō), "to loose"..Pseudoparalysis (pseudo- meaning "false, not genuine", from Greek ψεῦδος) is voluntary restriction or inhibition of motion Because of pain, incoordination, orgasm, or other cause, and is not due to actual muscular paralysis.. In an infant, it may be a symptom of congenital syphilis..Oh what the heck, it's always Green...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hta0ndC7Dqw

He arrived at Toccoa in mid-August 1942 and was assigned to Company E, 2nd Battalion, 506th PIR, serving under First Lieutenant (later Captain) Herbert Sobel..Company E was also known as "Easy Company" per the contemporaneous Joint Army/Navy Phonetic Alphabet. Initially he served as a platoon leader in charge of 2nd Platoon, but later, in October 1942, he was promoted to 1st lieutenant and became the acting company executive officer, although this was not made official until May 1943..The 506th PIR was an experimental unit, being the first regiment to undertake airborne training as a formed unit..As many of the men had very little previous military experience the training at Toccoa was necessarily very tough and as a consequence there was a high level of personnel wastage. Indeed, of the 500 officers who had volunteered, only 148 successfully completed the course. The enlisted men had it equally tough, with only 1,800 men being selected out of 5,300 volunteers..Promoted to first lieutenant, Sobel commanded Company E for all of their basic training at Camp Toccoa, Georgia.. He was known to be strict, earning hatred by many of his men. However, because of the intense training he gave his men, he was credited with creating the finest company in the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment. He was promoted to the rank of captain in recognition of his ability as a trainer..Shortly before Easy Company took part in the invasion of the Netherlands, Sobel was assigned to the 506th once again, this time replacing Salve Matheson as the regimental S-4 (logistics) officer for Operation Market Garden P..Sobel was negatively portrayed as inept in the television series Band of Brothers, a depiction which has proved controversial..Since the series, his son Michael has spoken out on his behalf.. In various interviews, Easy Company veterans have acknowledged the importance Sobel's training played in the company's later successes..In the late 1960s, Sobel shot himself in the head with a small-caliber pistol.. The bullet entered his left temple, passed behind his eyes, and exited out the other side of his head. This severed his optic nerves and left him blind.. He was later moved to a VA assisted living facility in Waukegan, Illinois. Sobel resided there for his last 17 years until his death due to malnutrition on September 30, 1987.. No services were held for Sobel after his death...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4y3csTi_Es

Kehlsteinhaus (in English-speaking countries also known as the Eagle's Nest) is a chalet-style structure erected on a subpeak of the Hoher Göll known as the Kehlstein.. It was built as an extension of the Obersalzberg complex erected in the mountains above Berchtesgaden.. The Kehlsteinhaus was intended as a 50th birthday present for Adolf Hitler to serve as a retreat, and a place for him to entertain visiting dignitaries..The Kehlsteinhaus was commissioned by Martin Bormann, with construction proceeding over a 13-month period. It was completed in the summer of 1938, prior to its formal presentation to Hitler on his 50th birthday on April 20, 1939. It is situated on a ridge at the top of the Kehlstein mountain 1,834 m (6,017 ft), reached by a 6.5 km (4.0 mi) long and 4 m (13 ft) wide road that cost RM 30 million to build (about 150 million euros in 2007, adjusted in line with inflation). It includes five tunnels but only one hairpin turn and climbs 800 m (2,600 ft)..The last 124 m (407 ft) up to the Kehlsteinhaus are reached by an elevator bored straight down through the mountain and linked via a tunnel through the granite below that is 124 m (407 ft) long..The inside of the large elevator car is surfaced with polished brass, Venetian mirrors and green leather (the elevator is still used daily).. Construction of the mountain elevator system cost the Lives of 12 construction Workers...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIEb3d--B9U



The 10th (Sussex) Parachute Battalion was an airborne infantry battalion of the Parachute Regiment, raised by the British Army during the Second World War..When the Territorial Army was reformed after the war in 1947. A new 10th Battalion was raised. It was part of the reserve 44th Parachute Brigade in the 16th Airborne Division. However as a result of defence cuts the battalion was eventually amalgamated with the 4th Battalion..The original 10th Parachute Battalion was a war-formed unit which as part of the British 1st Airborne Division fought at the Battle of Arnhem (Operation Market Garden)..During this action Captain Lionel Ernest Queripel was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross..I was on parade (following a week of training at Windsor Barracks) at the presentation of colours by HRH Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, at Duke of York's HQ, Chelsea on 3rd June 1983..

This was similar to that used by the Lowland Scottish Regiments being a section of the Hunting Stewart Tartan.. It was also worn on the beret behind the parachute regiment capbadge..The Battle of Bréville was fought by the British 6th Airborne Division and the German 346th Infantry Division, between the 8 and 13 June 1944, during the invasion of Normandy in the 2nd World War..The British attack occurred over the night of 12/13 June 1944, when Major General Richard Nelson Gale committed his only reserves, the 12th Parachute Battalion, a company from the 12th Battalion Devonshire Regiment and the 22nd Independent Parachute Company...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2osSsbB09Ps

Arrow R Waves



In 1940, Motorola (then the Galvin Manufacturing Company) received a contract from the War Department to develop a portable, battery powered voice radio receiver/transmitter for field use by infantry units. The project engineering team consisted of Daniel E. Noble, who conceived of the design using frequency modulation, Henryk Magnuski who was the principal RF engineer, Marion Bond, Lloyd Morris, and Bill Vogel..The final acceptance tests took place at Fort Knox, Kentucky. The performance of the SCR-300 during those tests demonstrated its capacity to communicate through interference and the rugged quality of the design. Motorola was to produce nearly 50,000 of the SCR-300 units during the course of the war..The British adopted the design of the SCR-300 for their own use from 1947 as the "Wireless Set No. 31"...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCKaTkxDSWs

Military organizations use handheld radios for a variety of purposes. Modern units such as the AN/PRC-148 Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio (MBITR) can communicate on a variety of bands and modulation schemes and include encryption capabilities..The MBITR was developed by USSOCOM and Thales Communications in the 1990s and went into production in 2000, to address the need for a secure multiband handheld radio.. As the US Army realized the benefits of the system it began wider deployment with Stryker Combat Teams and then with troops deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan. As of August 2007, 100,000 MBITRs have been fielded, over 31,000 of which are in use by the US Army..Encryption has long been used by militaries and governments to facilitate secret communication.. It is now commonly used in protecting information within many kinds of systems...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaGAkTMFtWU

Pegasus Company (also known as P Coy) is the rigorous training and selection British military organisation based at the Infantry Training Centre, Catterick, North Yorkshire. P Coy run the 'Pre-Parachute Selection' Courses for trainee Parachute Regiment soldiers and officers as well as an "All-Arms Course" for Regular and Territorial Army (TA) troops. P Coy is also responsible for delivery of the TA Combat Infantryman's Course (CIC) for candidates for the TA Parachute Battalion, 4 Para..Pre-Parachute Selection must be undertaken by all Army candidates for parachute training who have not already undergone a strenuous form of training, such as UK Special Forces..Training in P Coy culminates in a series of 8 tests undertaken over a 5 day period (starting on a Wed and finishing on Tue, with the weekend off).. For recruits directly joining the Parachute Regiment, the tests are attempted at week 21 of training, All-Arms candidates attempt the tests after 2 and a half weeks of build-up training..Upon successful completion of the course, candidates participate in the Basic Parachute course at RAF Brize Norton, OXfordshire..

Lightbulb RAF Brize Norton


Quote:
Royal Air Force Brize Norton or RAF Brize Norton (IATA: BZZ, ICAO: EGVN) in Oxfordshire, about 65 mi (105 km) west north-west of London, is the largest station of the Royal Air Force.. It is close to the settlements of Brize Norton, Carterton and Witney..The station is home to Air Transport, Air-to-Air refuelling and Military Parachuting, with aircraft operating from the station including the Lockheed C-130 Hercules, Boeing C-17 Globemaster III and Airbus A330 MRTT Voyager which replaced the now decommissioned Lockheed TriStar in March 2014..Major infrastructure redevelopment began in 2010 ahead of the closure of RAF Lyneham in 2012, at which point Brize Norton became the sole air point of embarkation for British troops..By the end of June 2011 all flying units from RAF Lyneham had moved to RAF Brize Norton..

RAF Brize Norton was opened in 1937 as a training station and one of the first squadrons to use the airfield was No. 110 Squadron RAF which was mainly based at RAF Wattisham but a detachment used Brize Norton from June 1939 until 17 March 1942 with the Bristol Blenheim Mks I and IV before leaving for the far-east.. 296 Squadron and 297 Squadron both moved in on 14 March 1944 with their Armstrong Whitworth Albemarles before 296 squadron added the Handley Page Halifax V to their inventory and moved to RAF Earls Colne on 29 September 1944 and 297 squadron moving to the same place a day later.. 297 Sqn returned after the Second World War had ended, on 5 September 1946 with the Halifax Mks A.7 and A.9 from RAF Tarrant Rushton before leaving during the summer of 1947 on 21 August moving to RAF..

1 November 1990 - 3 'pink' Puma HC1s leave Brize Norton inside a USAF C5 Galaxy, followed by eight on 2 November and 4 on 3 November for No 230 (C) Squadron at Ras Al Ghar, Saudi Arabia. RAF base commander there is Gp Capt Sam Hunt. Pumas have been fitted with infra-red jammers, chaff/flare dispensers and enhanced navigation equipment. RAF Hercules begin flying routes within the Gulf theatre, using Riyadh as a central base. Typically 4 aircraft at any one time..Tuesday, 1 August 2006..US military flights carrying bombs to Israel will no longer use any civilian airports in the UK, the BBC has learnt..The decision follows criticism of the use of Prestwick Airport, near Glasgow, to refuel flights suspected of carrying bombs to Israel..It has emerged that in future only military airfields will be used..The decision was reached after protests at the airport and discussions between various government departments, led by the Foreign Office..Brize Norton has 2 public houses.. The Chequers and The Masons Arms. Brize Norton has a women's Football Club and a Women's Institute..

Monarch is the oldest UK airline to have not changed its original name..

At the time of Monarch's inception, the Mantegazza family were the owners of UK-based tour operator Cosmos Tours (now Cosmos Holidays)..In 1993, Monarch Airlines introduced the first Airbus A320 aircraft into its fleet. (The first of the larger Airbus A321s joined Monarch's fleet in 1997.).. Airbus A320 family aircraft eventually replaced the airline's Boeing 737-300s..In 1998, Monarch Airlines leased two McDonnell Douglas MD-11 widebodied aircraft from World Airways for its long-haul operations whilst awaiting the delivery of a pair of new Airbus A330-200 widebodies..Destinations 100+ (30 scheduled)..In November 2005 Monarch opened a base at Málaga..

A general-purpose machine gun (GPMG) is an air-cooled, belt-fed weapon with a quick change barrel that can be used in a variety of roles, from bipod- or tripod-mounted infantry support, to deployment as a helicopter door gun, or a vehicle-mounted support weapon.. Modern GPMGs fire full-power rifle cartridges such as the 7.62×51mm NATO, 7.62×54mmR, 7.92x57mm Mauser, etc.."With the MG 34, the German Wehrmacht introduced an entirely new concept in automatic firepower - the general-purpose machine gun (GPMG).. In itself the MG 34 was an excellent weapon: an air-cooled, recoil-operated machine gun that could run through belts of 7.92mm ammunition at a rate of 850rpm, delivering killing firepower at ranges of more than 1,000m..Such were its qualities of firepower and usability that it became the foundation of an entire series of postwar machine guns, including the MG 1 and MG 3 - the latter is still in production and service to this day"..German Heckler & Koch HK21, based on the Heckler & Koch G3 rifle and Wid-ely Xported...

While best known for its role as the British and Commonwealth forces' primary infantry light machine gun (LMG) in World War II, it was also used in the Korean War and saw service throughout the latter half of the 20th century, including the 1982 Falklands War and the 1991 Gulf War.. Although fitted with a bipod, it could also be mounted on a tripod or vehicle-mounted..The Bren is still sold by Indian Ordnance Factories as the "Gun, Machine 7.62mm 1B"..X-maglen or Crosmaglen (from Irish: Crois Mhic Lionnáin, meaning "Mac Lionnáin's cross") is a village and townland in south County Armagh, Northern Ireland. It had a population of 1,459 people in the 2001 Census and is the largest village in south Armagh. The village centre is the site of a large Police Service of Northern Ireland base and formerly of an observation tower (known locally as the "look-out post")..The square's name commemorates Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich, a local man who became Primate of All Ireland (head of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland), and who died in 1990..X-maglen also gives its name to a famous GAA team..On 13 January 1921, during the Irish War of Independence, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) shot dead an Ulster Special Constabulary (USC) constable in X-maglen.. He was the first member of the USC to be killed whilst on duty..Crossmaglen Rangers hold the national record of 39 County Titles, including 13-in-a-row. They also hold the record of 9 Ulster club titles..During the Troubles, at least 58 police officers and 124 soldiers were killed by the Provisional IRA in South Armagh, many in Crossmaglen itself.. It was here that a team of snipers killed 12 members of the security forces in the 1990s...

A traumatic event involves one experience, or repeating events with the sense of being overwhelmed that can be delayed by weeks, years, or even decades as the person struggles to cope with the immediate circumstances, eventually leading to serious, long-term negative consequences, often overlooked even by mental health professionals: "If clinicians fail to look through a trauma lens and to conceptualize client problems as related possibly to current or past trauma, they may fail to see that trauma victims, young and old, organize much of their lives around repetitive patterns of reliving and warding off traumatic memories, reminders, and affects"...

An improvised explosive device (IED) is a homemade bomb constructed and deployed in ways other than in conventional military action. It may be constructed of conventional military explosives, such as an artillery round, attached to a detonating mechanism. Roadside bombs are a common use of IEDs..IEDs may be used in terrorist actions or in unconventional warfare by guerrillas or commando forces in a theater of operations. In the second Iraq War, IEDs were used extensively against US-led Coalition forces and by the end of 2007 they had become responsible for approximately 63% of Coalition deaths in Iraq.. They are also used in Afghanistan by insurgent groups, and have caused over 66% of the Coalition casualties in the 2001–present Afghanistan War..

Ἀργοναῦται\Argonauts...

Quote:
The Final Cut is an anti-war concept album, whose lyrics explore what Waters regards as the betrayal of fallen British servicemen — such as his father — who during World War II sacrificed their lives in the spirit of a post-war dream. This post-war dream was that their victory would usher in a more peaceful world, whose leaders would no longer be so eager to solve disputes by resorting to war. The album's lyrics are critical of Thatcher, whose policies and decisions Waters regarded as an example of this betrayal. She is referred to as "Maggie" throughout the album, with the introduction of the Welfare State, we felt we were moving forward into something resembling a liberal country where we would all look after one another ... but I'd seen all that chiselled away, and I'd seen a return to an almost Dickensian society under Margaret Thatcher.. I felt then, as now, that the British government should have pursued diplomatic avenues, rather than steaming in the moment that task force arrived in the South Atlantic..The 2nd half of the album deals with various war-related issues. While "Southampton Dock" is a lament to returning war heroes, and also those soldiers heading out to a likely death, "Not Now John" addresses the ignorance of society toward political and economic problems.. "Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert" deals with Waters' feelings about war and invasion, and "The Fletcher Memorial Home" (the title is a nod to Waters' lost father) reflects the fantasy of gathering together political leaders including Leonid Brezhnev, Menachem Begin, and Margaret Thatcher, and applying "the final solution" to them.. The album's title track deals with the aftermath of a man's isolation and sexual repression, as he contemplates suicide, and struggles to reconnect with the world around him. The album ends with "Two Suns in the Sunset", a song that portrays a nuclear holocaust, the final result of a world obsessed with war and control...

Columbia Records is an American flagship recording label, under the ownership of Sony Music Entertainment, operating under the Columbia Music Group. It was founded in 1888, evolving from an earlier enterprise, the American Graphophone Company—successor to the Volta Graphophone Company.. Columbia is the oldest brand name in recorded sound, being the first record company to produce recorded records as opposed to blank cylinders..It is one of Sony Music's 3 flagship record labels with the others being Epic Records and RCA Records..The Columbia Phonograph Company was founded by stenographer, lawyer and New Jersey native Edward Easton (1856-1915) and a group of investors. It derived its name from the District of Columbia, where it was headquartered..At first it had a local monopoly on sales and service of Edison phonographs and phonograph cylinders in Washington, D.C., Marylandand Delaware.. As was the custom of some of the regional phonograph companies, Columbia produced many commercial cylinder recordings of its own, and its catalogue of musical records in 1891 was 10 pages..His Master's Voice or Italy's Fonotipia Records. After an abortive attempt in 1904 to manufacture discs with the recording grooves stamped into both sides of each disc—not just one—in 1908 Columbia commenced successful mass production of what they called their "Double-Faced" discs, the 10-inch variety initially selling for 65 cents apiece.. The firm also introduced the internal-horn "Grafonola" to compete with the extremely popular "Victrola" sold by the rival Victor Talking Machine Company..During this era, Columbia used the famous "Magic Notes" logo—a pair of .16th notes (semiquavers) in a circle—both in the United States and overseas..

Arrow Pig Saracen


Quote:
The FV603 Saracen Weight 11 t was the armoured personnel carrier of Alvis' FV600 series. Besides the driver and commander, a squad of 8 soldiers plus a troop commander could be carried. Most models carried a small turret on the roof, carrying a Browning .30 machine gun. A .303 Bren gun could be mounted on an anti-aircraft ring-mount accessed through a roof hatch and there were ports on the sides through which troops could fire. Although removed from active service, it saw extensive use into the 1980s in Northern Ireland and was a familiar sight during "The Troubles". At times they even appeared on the streets of Hull, a less-hostile atmosphere for driver training in a city of similar appearance to Belfast, and only a few miles from the Army School of Mechanical Transport..



The Humber Pig Speed 64 km/h was a lightly armoured truck used by the British Army from the 1950s until the 1990s. The Pig was also used by the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) for a short period during the late 1960s and early 1970s, who painted their Pigs in Admiralty Grey, rather than the standard Army Deep Bronze Green gloss (BS381c colour 224).. From 1976 all army vehicles (except public duties vehicles and some specialist vehicles) were painted NATO green (BS381c colour 285) in a matt finish paint with IRR (Infra-red reflecting) properties. The Pig became particularly well known from its presence on the streets of Northern Ireland
during the worst of the Troubles...

Lightbulb Domhnach na Fola


Quote:
Bloody Sunday —sometimes called the Bogside Massacre—was an incident on 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Londonderry, Northern Ireland, in which 26 civil rights protesters and bystanders were shot by soldiers of the British Army.. Thirteen males, se7en of whom were teenagers, died immediately or soon after, while the death of another man four-and-a-half months later was attributed to the injuries he received on that day..Two protesters were also injured when they were run down by army vehicles.. The incident occurred during a Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association march; the soldiers involved were members of the First Battalion of the Parachute Regiment (1 Para)..The people planned on marching to the Guildhall, but because of army barricades designed to reroute the march, the protesters redirected it to Free Derry Corner. A group of teenagers broke off from the march and persisted in pushing the barricade and marching on the Guildhall. They attacked the British army barricade with stones. At this point, a water cannon, tear gas and rubber bullets were used to disperse the rioters. Such confrontations between soldiers and youths were common, and observers reported that the rioting was not intense. Two civilians, Damien Donaghy and John Johnston, were shot and wounded on William Street by soldiers, who claimed that the former was carrying a black cylindrical object..At a certain point, reports of an IRA sniper operating in the area were allegedly given to the Army command centre. At 4:07 pm Brigade gave the British Parachute Regiment permission to go into the Bogside.. The order to fire live rounds was given, and one young man was shot and killed when he ran down Chamberlain Street away from the advancing troops. This first fatality, Jackie Duddy, was among a crowd who were running away. He was running alongside a priest, Father Edward Daly, when he was shot in the back.. Eventually the order was given to mobilise the troops in an arrest operation, chasing the tail of the main group of marchers to the edge of the field by Free Derry Corner..Despite a cease-fire order from the army HQ, over 100 rounds were fired directly into the fleeing crowds by troops under the command of Major Ted Loden.. Twelve more were killed, many of them as they attempted to aid the fallen.. Fourteen others were wounded, 12 by shots from the soldiers and two knocked down by armoured personnel carriers...

Although there were many IRA men—both Official and Provisional—present at the protest, it is claimed they were all unarmed, apparently because it was anticipated that the paratroopers would attempt to "draw them out".. March organiser and MP Ivan Cooper had been promised beforehand that no armed IRA men would be near the march. One paratrooper who gave evidence at the Tribunal testified that they were told by an officer to expect a gunfight and "We want some kills".. In the event, one man was witnessed by Father Edward Daly and others haphazardly firing a revolver in the direction of the paratroopers. Later identified as a member of the Official IRA, this man was also photographed in the act of drawing his weapon, but was apparently not seen or targeted by the soldiers.. Various other claims have been made to the Saville Inquiry about gunmen on the day...

The O'Develins claimed a common descent from Develin ( Dobhuilen or "Raging Valour", an Irish noble of the royal blood of Aileach who flourished in or about the 8th century AD and was 8th in descent from Owen, the founder of the clan)..Following the events of Bloody Sunday Bernadette Devlin, an Independent Socialist nationalist MP from Northern Ireland, expressed anger at what she perceived as government attempts to stifle accounts being reported about the day. Having witnessed the events firsthand, she was later infuriated that she was consistently denied the chance to speak in Parliament about the day, although parliamentary convention decreed that any MP witnessing an incident under discussion would be granted an opportunity to speak about it in the House.. Devlin punched Reginald Maudling, the Secretary of State for the Home Department in the Conservative government, when he made a statement to Parliament on the events of Bloody Sunday stating that the British Army had fired only in self-defence.. She was temporarily suspended from Parliament as a result of the incident.. Nonetheless, six months after Bloody Sunday, Lieutenant Colonel Derek Wilford who was directly in charge of 1 Para, the soldiers who went into the Bogside, was awarded the Order of the British Empire by the Queen, while other soldiers were equally decorated with honors for their part on the day..In January 1997, the United Kingdom television station Channel 4 carried a news report that suggested that members of the Royal Anglian Regiment had also opened fire on the protesters and could have been responsible for three of the fourteen deaths..Evidence given by Martin McGuinness, a senior member of Sinn Féin and now the deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, to the inquiry stated that he was second-in-command of the Derry City brigade of the Provisional IRA and was present at the march. He did not answer questions about where he had been staying because he said it would compromise the safety of the individuals involved..A claim was made at the Saville Inquiry that McGuinness was responsible for supplying detonators for nail bombs on Bloody Sunday. Paddy Ward claimed he was the leader of the Fianna Éireann, the youth wing of the IRA in January 1972. He claimed that McGuinness, the 2IC of the IRA in the city at the time, and another anonymous IRA member gave him bomb parts on the morning of 30 January, the
date planned for the civil rights march...

I visited there when I was doing a tour on my Regiment's History. My old Regiment precedes them in the order of precedence.
She did say her uncle was one of the first paratroopers - a paratrooper, not a glider-borne soldier. He was in the relief column that relieved them. John Howard's book about the attack he led is very good.

I knew a man who parachuted into Armhem, and I feel gratitude that we have such men. You can see him if you search for Oosterbeek Patrol. He is third from the left, second from the right, in the photographic re-enactment of their activity.

When he died, his ashes were scattered from an aeroplane over Arnhem. I hope no one was having a picnic at the time or their sandwiches might have been a bit gritty.

Lightbulb Astra Kadett


The car in which Karen Reilly and Martin Peake died..
Quote:
Sergeant Lee Clegg is a British Army soldier who was convicted of murder for his involvement in the shooting dead of two teenage joyriders in West Belfast, Northern Ireland.. His conviction was later overturned..The shooting took place in West Belfast on 30 September 1990.. Clegg, then a private originally from Bradford, England, and his fellow soldiers manning the checkpoint on the Upper Glen Road, fired nineteen bullets into a stolen Vauxhall Astra that passed through their checkpoint travelling at high speed. Clegg fired four of the bullets, the last of which killed 18 year old passenger Karen Reilly.. The driver, 17 year old Martin Peake, also died at the scene, and the third passenger, Markiewicz Gorman, escaped with minor injuries..Clegg was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder in 1993, the court having decided that lethal force had been used without a lawful purpose.. The fourth bullet was said to have been fired through the back of the car as it was leaving the checkpoint and was therefore no longer a threat to the soldiers. The murder conviction was condemned by unionists and some British newspapers, including the Daily Mail (First published in 1896 by Lord Northcliffe), which began a campaign for Clegg's release on the grounds that he was just doing his job in difficult circumstances..Clegg continued to serve as part of 16 Air Assault Brigade. In September 2007 the Daily Mail reported that Clegg would be serving in Afghanistan in 2008 as combat medic with the 2nd Battalion Parachute Regiment..The Astra name originated with Vauxhall's 1980 model, though the car had originally been launched almost a year earlier as the Opel Kadett D..Production began at Opel's West German plant at Bochum in August 1979, and the first British customers took delivery of their cars in February 1980..In Hinduism, an astra was a supernatural weapon, presided over by a specific deity.. To summon or use an astra required knowledge of a specific incantation/invocation, when armed...



Astraea, the celestial virgin,was the last of the immortals to live with humans during the Golden Age, one of the old Greek religion's 5 deteriorating Ages of Man..Iain West (born 25 April 1944, death 23 July 2001 Hastings, East Sussex) was a British forensic pathologist.. He was involved in examining numerous deaths, many which are described in the book Dr Iain West's Casebook he published in collaboration with journalist Chester Stern.. From 1984 to 1998 he was head of the Department of Forensic Medicine at Guy's Hospital..Among the deaths Iain West investigated were that of Robert Maxwell. Maxwell had fallen, jumped or been pushed overboard his yacht Lady Ghislaine 5 November 1991..The partially burnt body of Dr Robert Ouko, Kenya’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, was officially found at the foot of Got Alila Hill, 2.8 km from his farm at Koru, near Kisumu, north western Kenya, on the 16th February, 1990, following a police search.. He had gone missing in the early hours of the morning 3 days before (13 February)..On the 19th February the Kenyan government announced that 3 detectives from Scotland Yard, Detective Superintendent John Troon together with Detective Inspector Graham Dennis and Detective Sergeant David Sanderson from ‘the Yard’s’ International and Organised Crime Branch, would take over the investigation. They were accompanied by Dr Iain West, then a Forensic Pathologist from Guys and St Thomas Hospitals, London..The Scotland Yard team arrived in Kenya on 21 February..The study of pathology, including the detailed examination of the body, including dissection and inquiry into specific maladies, dates back to antiquity..The modern practice of pathology is divided into a number of subdisciplines within the discreet but deeply interconnected aims of
biological research and medical practice..

Although maroon, the beret of the British Parachute Regiment is often known as the "red beret."..In the British Army, most regiments wear headdress or cap badges which reflect regimental traditions..Members of the Parachute Regiment and other arms in 16th Air Assault Brigade are permitted to wear the maroon beret..The beret is often called the "red beret" and the Parachute Regiment is known as the "red berets" or (within the Army) the "maroon machine" or "Cherry Berry"..

No. 2 Commando were tasked with specialising in airborne assault and became the nucleus of the Parachute Regiment...

Arrow Cameroon Rifle


Cap Badge of The Cameronians..
Quote:
The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) was an infantry regiment of the British Army, the only regiment of rifles amongst the Scottish regiments of infantry. It was formed in 1881 under the Childers Reforms by the amalgamation of 2 other regiments:

26th Cameronian Regiment..
90th Perthshire Light Infantry..


After the amalgamation, the 1st Battalion preferred to be known as "The Cameronians" while the 2nd preferred to be known as "The Scottish Rifles" and relations between the two battalions were correct rather than friendly. The regiment saw service during the Second Boer War in South Africa, and raised 27 battalions during the First World War...


The Douglas tartan..

The regiment's cap badge featured a Mullet from the coat of arms of the Douglas family on a stringed bugle within two sprigs of thistle...

Every new member of the regiment was issued a Bible, as a nod to Richard Cameron, after whom the original 26th Foot was named..

The regiment's only Colonel-in-Chief was King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden...
