Lightbulb Life Guards


3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards..
Quote:
The Grenadier Guards is an infantry regiment of the British Army.. It is the most senior regiment of the Guards Division and, as such, is the most senior regiment of infantry. It is not, however, the most senior regiment of the Army, this position being attributed to The Life Guards.. Although The Coldstream Guards were formed before The Grenadier Guards, the regiment is ranked after the Grenadiers in seniority as, having been a regiment of the New Model Army, the Coldstream served the Crown for 4 fewer years than the Grenadiers (the Grenadiers having formed as a Royalist regiment in exile in 1656 and the Coldstream having sworn allegiance to the Crown upon the Restoration in 1660)...


The Colonel-in-chief alongside the Colonel of the Regiment..

The Grenadier Guards and other Guards regiments have a longstanding connection to The Parachute Regiment.. Guardsmen who have completed P Company are transferred into the Guards Parachute Platoon, which is currently attached to the 3rd Battalion, The Parachute Regiment.. The Guards Parachute Platoon maintains the tradition established by the No 1 (Guards) Independent Parachute Company that was part of the original Pathfinder Group of 16th Parachute Brigade, which has since been designated as the 16th Air Assault Brigade..Recruits to the Guards Division go through a thirty-week gruelling training programme at the Infantry Training Centre (ITC).. The training is 2 weeks more than the training for the Regular line infantry regiments of the British Army; the extra training, carried out throughout the course, is devoted to drill and ceremonies...

Its literal translation from Old French is "Shame be to him who thinks evil of it".. It is sometimes re-interpreted as "Evil (or shame) be to him that evil thinks."..In contemporaneous French usage, it is usually used ironically, to insinuate the presence of hidden agendas or conflicts of interest..The saying's most famous use is as the motto of the Britishchivalric Order of the Garter.. It is also inscribed at the end of the manuscript of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, but that appears to have been a later addition...

Lightbulb Welsh Guards



Sphinx cap badge ..
Quote:
The Welsh Guards came into existence on 26 February 1915 by Royal Warrant of His Majesty King George V in order to include Wales in the national component to the Foot Guards, "..though the order to raise the regiment had been given by the King to Earl Kitchener, Secretary of State for War, on 6 February 1915".. They were the last of the Guards to be created, with the Irish Guards coming into being in 1900.. Just 3 days later the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards mounted its first King's Guard at Buckingham Palace on 1 March 1915 – St David's Day..In 1929 the 1st Welsh Guards deployed to Egypt where they joined the Cairo Brigade where they stayed for only a brief period of time, returning home in 1930...


Zulu : Men of Harlech..

Shortly after the end of the war the 3rd Battalion was disbanded I while the 2nd Battalion was placed in suspender animation..n 1947 the 1st Welsh Guards were dispatched to Palestine, then under British control, while it was in a volatile and violent situation.. The Welsh Guards were part of the 1st Guards Brigade and performed internal security (IS) duties while there, before leaving in 1948 during the British withdrawal and when the state of Israel was declared..In 1950 the regiment arrived in West Germany as part of the 4th Guards Brigade, part of the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR). In 1952 the regiment joined the Berlin Brigade in West Berlin, an enclave in Communist East Germany during tense times between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Warsaw Pact...

In 1960 the regiment deployed to West Germany again, and in 1965 to Aden, another part of the declining British Empire.. They were to return home the following year. In 1970 the regiment arrived again in West Germany, this time at Münster, as part of 4th Armoured Brigade...In 1972 came deployment to Northern Ireland, then embroiled in violence later known as "The Troubles".. During its tour of duty the regiment lost Sergeant Phillip Price in a terrorist attack by the IRA on the Oxford Street Bus Depot in Belfast, one of a series of terrorist attacks in the city which became known as "Bloody Friday".. The following year the Welsh Guards were dispatched to the province again and during this period lost Guardsman David Roberts in a landmine explosion..In October 1975 till March 1976 the Welsh Guards were part of the British contingent of the UN force deployed to Cyprus in the aftermath of the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974..In 77 the regiment arrived in West Berlin again, and then in 1979 once more in the midst of the volatile situation in Northern Ireland, they lost Guardsman Paul Fryer to a booby trap bomb.. On 9 July 1981, Daniel Barrett, aged 15 years, was sitting on the garden wall of his home in Havana Court, Ardoyne, North Belfast, when he was shot dead by a soldier..Many people have mistakenly said this was a Welsh Guardsman however no Welsh Guardsman was serving in Ulster at that time..


The South Wales Borderers was a line infantry regiment of the British Army in existence for 280 years..It first came into existence, as the 24th Regiment of Foot, in 1689, but was not called the South Wales Borderers the Childers Reforms of 1881..As its name suggests, the regiment recruited primarily from South Wales...

The Revenant Bear Attack..
Quote:
A bearskin is a tall fur cap, usually worn as part of a ceremonial military uniform..Traditionally, the bearskin was the headgear of grenadiers and it is still worn by grenadier and guards regiments in various armies..Immediately prior to the outbreak of World War I in 1914, bearskins were still worn by guard or other units in the British, Belgian, Danish, Dutch, Russian and Swedish..This did not include use of the busby and other types of smaller fur headdress sometimes confused with the high bearskin.. The Italian Sardinian Grenadiers had discarded bearskins in the nineteenth century but were to readopt them for limited ceremonial wear in modern times..Problem-solving is hunting; it is savage pleasure and we are born to it... ..


Wojtek Born 1942 Hamadan, Iran..

Following the Battle of Waterloo and the action in which they gained their name, the Grenadier Guards were permitted to wear the bearskin.. In 1831, this practice was extended to the other 2 regiments of Foot Guards then in existence.. The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, Honourable Artillery Company and officers of Fusilier regiments also wear the bearskin as part of their ceremonial uniform..The standard bearskin of the British Foot Guards is 18 inches tall, weighs 1.5 pounds and is made from the fur of the Canadian black bear..However, an officer's bearskin is made from the fur of the Canadian brown bear as the female brown bear has thicker, fuller fur and is dyed black.. An entire skin is used for each hat..On 3 August 1888, The New York Times reported that bearskin caps might be phased out because of a shortage of bear skins..In 2005, the Ministry of Defence began a two-year test of artificial fur for the hats..If properly maintained, the caps last for decades..Army officials say approximately 100 skins are taken every year from the annual cull of thousands of bears by native Inuit hunters in a Canadian government programme to keep numbers under control..

He was later officially enlisted as a soldier of the company with the rank of Private, and subsequently became a Corporal..He was subsequently given fruit, marmalade, honey and syrup, and was often rewarded with beer, which became his favourite drink.. He later also enjoyed smoking (or eating) cigarettes.. He loved wrestling with the soldiers and was taught to salute when greeted..During the Battle of Monte Cassino, Wojtek helped move crates of ammunition..Following the end of World War II in 1945, Wojtek was transported to Berwickshire in Scotland with the rest of the 22nd Company, near the village of Hutton, Scottish Borders..He was a frequent guest on BBC TV Blue Peter programme..Darth December 2, 1963 (aged 21) Edinburgh Zoo, Scotland...

"Bearskin" is a fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm, as tale no. 101..It is Aarne-Thompson type 361, Bearskin, in which a man gains a fortune and a beautiful bride by entering into a pact with the devil..A man was a soldier, but when war ended, his parents were dead, and his brothers had no place for him..A green-coated man with a cloven hoof appeared to him and offered to make him rich if he would for se7en years not cut his hair, clip his nails, bathe, or pray, and wear a coat and cloak that he would give him..The ogre heard of their wedding and set out with his se7en-league boots..In the kingdom, he disguised himself and offered to give golden distaffs and silver spindles to the nurses and governesses of the young princes if he could spend a night in the babies' chamber..Bearskin Lake Air Service LP, operating as Bearskin Airlines, is a regional airline based in Sioux Lookout...

Royal Rifle Corps was raised in the American colonies in 1756 as the 62nd (Royal American) Regiment to defend the 13 colonies against attack by the French and their Native American allies..The regiment was intended to combine the characteristics of a colonial corps with those of a foreign legion.. Swiss and German forest fighting experts, American colonists and British volunteers from other British regiments were recruited.. In the First World War the KFC was expanded to 28 battalions and saw much action on the Western Front, Macedonia and Italy with 60 battle honours awarded.. After 1918 the unit returned to garrison duties in India, Palestine and Ireland.. In 1922 the regiment was reduced from 4 to 2 battalions with the 3rd and 4th being disbanded.. In 1926 the Regiment was reorganised as one of the first mechanised infantry regiments..In 1948, for administrative purposes the KRRC was brigaded with the Ox & Bucks Light Infantry and the Rifle Brigade to form the...


Sally Lockhart Mysteries..

Busby is the English name for the Hungarian prémes csákó ("fur shako") or kucsma, a military head-dress made of fur, originally worn by Hungarian hussars..Possibly the name's original sense of a "busby wig" came from association with Dr Richard Busby, headmaster of Westminster School in the late se7ententh century; the later phrase buzz wig may have been derived from busby.. In his 33rd year he had already become renowned for the obstinate zeal with which he supported the falling dynasty of the Stuarts, and was rewarded for his services with the prebend and rectory of Cudworth, with the chapel of Knowle annexed, in Somerset..Busby also knew Arabic and Hebrew and wrote grammars in those languages..There is a house named after him at Westminster School..The Busty Babes were notable not only for being young and gifted, but for being developed by the club itself, rather than bought from other clubs, which was customary then, as now...

Is a novel by Robert Penn Warren first published in 1946. Its title is drawn from the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty..Another motif in the novel is the "Great Twitch"..all the words we speak meant nothing and there was only the pulse in the blood and the twitch of the nerve, like a dead frog's leg in the experiment when the electric current goes through..The concept is brought to life for Jack when he witnesses a lobotomy performed by Adam..Time is another of the novel's thematic fascinations..The idea that every moment in the past contains the seeds of the future..The busby should not be mistaken for the much taller bearskin cap, worn most notably by the 5 regiments of Foot Guards of the Household Division..ye people in ye street, when he was expiring, saw flashes and sparks of fire come out of his window, which made them run into ye house to put it out, but when they were there saw none, nor did they of ye house..He left his considerable fortune to various charitable causes...

Nathan Mayer Rothschild and his wife Hannah are buried in the Brady Street Ashkenazi Cemetery in Whitechapel..And what happens at dawn?.I thought you knew.. The sun comes up..In the 19th century a story arose that accuses him of having used his early knowledge of victory at the Battle of Waterloo to speculate on the stock exchange and make a vast fortune..Research by the Rothschild family and others has shown that this story originated in an anti-Semitic French pamphlet in 1846, was embellished by John Reeves in 1887 in The Rothschilds: the Financial Rulers of Nations, and then repeated in other popular accounts like that of Morton and the 1934 American film directed by Alfred L. Werker, "The House of Rothschild."..Historian Niall Ferguson agrees that the Rothschilds' couriers did get to London first and alerted the family to Napoleon's defeat, but argues that since the family had been banking on a protracted military campaign, the losses arising from the disruption to their business more than offset any short-term gains in bonds after Waterloo..Rothschild capital did soar, but over a much longer period: Nathan's breakthrough had been prior to Waterloo when he negotiated a deal to supply cash to Wellington's army.. The family made huge profits over a number of years from this governmental financing by adopting a high-risk strategy involving exchange-rate transactions, bond-price speculations, and commissions..Wall Street is a 8-block-long, street running West to east...

The first sovereigns were of 23-carat (95.83%) gold and weighed 240 grains, or half a troy ounce..The half sovereign is an English and British Gold coin with a face value half that of a sovereign: equivalent to half a pound sterling, ten shillings, or 120 old pence..A bullion coin is a coin struck from precious metal and kept as a store of value or an investment, rather than used in day-to-day commerce..The half sovereign was first introduced in 1544 under Henry VIII..Modern half sovereigns, from 1817 onwards, have a di ameter of 19.30 MM..The reverse side, featuring St. George slaying a dragon was designed by Benedetto Pistrucci (29 May 1783 – 16 September 1855), whose initials appear to the right of the date..Pistrucci was born in Rome, 2nd son, of a family of 3..he acquired an interest in art and received instruction first from a cameo engraver known as"Mango" , in Rome.. At the age of 16 years, he left his master – who by then was said to be quite jealous of his pupil's abilities – and set up in business on his own, "loaded with commissions on all sides"..In Victorian times it was the practice of the Bank of England to remove worn sovereigns and half sovereigns from circulation and to have them recoined..It is estimated that in circulation a sovereign could have a lifespan of up to 15 years..Sovereigns were produced in large quantities until World War I, at which time the UK came off the gold standard..The sale of UK gold reserves was a policy pursued by HM Treasury over the period between 1999 and 2002, when gold prices were at their lowest in 20 years, following an extended bear market is a general decline in the stock market over a period of time..At the time, the UK's gold reserves were worth about US$6.5 billion, accounting for about half of the UK's US$13 billion foreign currency net reserves..As of December 2013, the UK retained a gold reserve of 310.3 tons...

On the night of 13–14 June 1982 the British launched an assault on Mount Tumbledown, one of the highest points near the town of Port Stanley, the capital, and succeeded in driving Argentinian forces from the mountain.. This close-quarters night battle (CQB) was later dramatized in the BBC film Tumbledown...During the battle, the 5th Marines Command Post took 5 direct hits, but Commander Robacio emerged unscathed..


Scots Guards drummer, piper, bugler and bandsman, circa 1891..

The Scots Guards (SG), part of the Guards Division, is one of the Foot Guards regiments of the British Army..The Scots Guards trace their origins back to 1642 when, by order of King Charles I, the regiment was raised by Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyll for service in Ireland, and was known as the Marquis of Argyll's Royal Regiment.. Their origins lie in the personal bodyguard of King Charles I of England and Scotland, although it was only placed on the English Establishment (thus becoming part of what is now the British Army) in 1686..It spent a number of years there and performed a variety of duties, but in the mid-1640s, during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms..Are you tired of cooking the same old chicken recipes?..

The Scots Guards and other Guards Regiments have a long-standing connection to The Parachute Regiment.. Guardsman who have Completed P company are Transferred into the Guards Parachute Platoon who are currently attached to 3 PARA still keeping the tradition of the No 1 (Guards) Independent Parachute Company who were the original Pathfinder Group of 16th Parachute Brigade now renamed 16th Air Assault Brigade..The Scots Guards is ranked as the 3rd regiment in the Guards Division; as such, Scots Guardsmen can be recognised by having the buttons on their tunics spaced in 3's..The regiment consists of a single operational battalion which was based in Catterick between 2008 and 2015, therafter moving to Aldershot in the armoured infantry role..The Scots guards have a pipe band famous the world over..Piper down I repeat we have a Piper down..During Operation Herrick 12 in 2010, Lance Corporal Monkhouse a Drummer, was killed whilst rescuing an injured soldier.. For his bravery and selfless action, he was awarded the Military Cross..The Dancing set is always a favourite of spectators at the shows...


Rupert was berthed in Burnham Deepdale, Norfolk, to Major Anthony Michael Everett (1921–2009), who worked in business and served in the British Army, and wife Sara (née Maclean).. He has a brother, Simon Anthony Cunningham Everett (born 1956).. His maternal grandfather,Vice Admiral Sir Hector Charles Donald Maclean, was a nephew of Scottish military man Hector Lachlan Stewart MacLean, who received the Victoria Cross.. His maternal grandmother, Opre Vyvyan, was a descendant of the baronets Vyvyan of Trelowarren and the German Freiherr (Baron) von Schmiedern.. He is of English, Irish, Scottish, and more distant German and Dutch, ancestry.. Everett was brought up as a Roman Catholic..From the age of se7en, Everett was educated at Farleigh School, Hampshire, and later was educated by Benedictine monks at Ampleforth College, Yorkshire; he left school at 16 and ran away to London to become an actor..Well, instead of serving the whole bird we say focus on the pieces with the most flavour:the drumsticks!..Renfield, look at me!..I'm drinking wine, and eating Turkey!.On Mount William's southern slopes, one of the tankhs was taken out of action by a booby trap..

Question Where Have All the Flowers Gone


Pete Seeger ..
Quote:
Ballater (Scottish Gaelic: Bealadair) is a burgh in Aberdeenshire, Scotland on the River Dee, immediately east of the Cairngorm Mountains..Situated at an elevation of 213 m (700 ft), Ballater is a centre for hikers and known for its spring water, is home to more than 1500 inhabitants..In the early 14th century, the area was part of the estates of the Knights of St John, but the settlement did not develop until around 1770..Ballater railway station was closed in 1966 but remains in use as a visitor centre with an exhibition recording the village's royal connection.. Many buildings date from the Victorian era and the centre of the village is a conservation area..The old railway station/ visitor centre was substantially damaged by fire in May 2015 and is now closed..Balmoral Castle, the British Royal Family's holiday home, lies approximately 12 km west, and the family has visited the town frequently since the time of Queen Victoria..Birkhall lies about 2 km south-west of Ballater..Victoria Barracks is used by the Royal Guard for the castle..Local stores had for decades Royal Warrants bestowed upon them..5 years after the passing of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who had granted them, the warrants lapsed and, to the chagrin of many townsfolk and especially shop owners, were removed..Several shops still display the arms marking the royal warrant..A Royal Guard describes any group of military bodyguards, soldiers or armed retainers responsible for the protection of a royal person, such as Emperor/Empress, King/Queen, or Prince/Princess..They often are an elite unit of the regular armed forces, or are designated as such, and may maintain special rights or privileges..Because of their location, status, role and nature, Royal Guards have frequently been able to play a political role beyond their intended military and social ones..


Little Masons put on a big show at Ballater..

VYZYGOTH - Alright, last question about this then, because I never really thought about it before and, of course, I’m asking you now..Have you any information to this effect - we know that there were mercenaries used by Great Britain in that war; now I’m wondering if it’s one they didn’t really want to get too messy about.. Do you know how much percentage of the troops over here were non-British?..

ALAN - It’s so hard to tell, because King George himself really came from Germany and the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family - there were 3 different Princedoms they had and they called themselves Saxe-Coburg-Gotha..They brought in most of the troops actually from Germany; they did bring in some recent recruits from the Highlands of Scotland, because they forbid them to wear the kilt after the Culloden battle of 1746 and they forbid them to speak their own Gaelic language, unless they joined the British Army.. And so they used a lot of Scots there as well as cannon fodder..They had a mass of Hessian troops, for sure, but they also employed mercenaries from all over Europe..

VYZYGOTH - Wouldn’t that make sense, now, I mean, to me, now, I said to myself: “okay, if in fact you wanted to make it look good, but you didn’t necessarily want to waste your own best blood - why not enlist those from other nations?..

ALAN - Yes, and also it’s well recorded in Masonic books that oftentimes, when the 2 sides were coming towards each other through the forests they’d give the Masonic signals to each other and literally look the other way and pass each other by..That happened quite often and they’d visit each other’s camps often too at night and have lodge meetings..

VYZYGOTH - You know, but what you say is really true; I mean, we hear so much about wars being a John Wayne thing, time and time again..No doubt, it is; now there is killing no doubt..But there were times, when - you know, I heard it, Alan, from parents of my friends who were, once in a while maybe loosened up a little bit by drink - talked about, you know, being in the trenches over in Europe and running into a German and something like that, looking at each other and going, we really don’t have to do this..And it makes sense, though, doesn’t it?.

ALAN - It does.. I know that in World War One, when they would run out of so many of the young, because they were throwing in whole battalions every day across the field, who were getting mowed down in 15 minutes with machine-gun fire, and they weren’t allowed to lie down or crawl or anything, they had to walk into this hail of machine-gun fire. They’d lost so many of the young and eventually it was a sort of stalemate, where nothing much was happening in the trenches, because it was the older guys that were generally left, and the older guys didn’t want to fight on either side..So once in a day they’d fire into the air and they’d all do their thing and they were all quite happy; so it was mandated in Canada and Australia to recruit the young very quickly and to get them really fired up to kill, and then they sent them over to the trenches to get the killing going again...

The Call of the Road is a 1920 British silent historical adventure film directed by A.E.

While Paris Sleeps..

McLaglen claimed to have been born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, though his birth certificate records Stepney in the East End of London as his true birthplace.. His father, Andrew Charles Albert McClaglen, later a bishop of the Free Protestant Episcopal Church of England, moved the family to South Africa when McLaglen was a child..He left home at 14 to join the British Army with the intention of fighting in the Second Boer War.. However, much to his chagrin, he was stationed at Windsor Castle in the Life Guards and was later forced to leave the army when his true age was discovered..Four years later, he moved to Canada, where he earned a living as a wrestler and heavyweight boxer, with several notable wins in the ring..He returned to Britain in 1913 and during the First World War served as a Captain (acting) with the 10th Battalion, Middlesex Regiment, part of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment (Queen's and Royal Hampshires).. Later he claimed to have served with the Royal Irish Fusiliers..He served for a time as military Assistant Provost Marshal for the city of Baghdad..After the war, he began taking roles in British silent films..McLaglen's career took a surprise turn in the 1920s, when he moved to Hollywood..

Lili Damita (10 July 1904 – 21 March 1994) was a French-American actress and singer who appeared in 33 films between 1922 and 1937..Born Liliane Marie-Madeleine Carré in Blaye, France, she was educated in convents and ballet schools in several European countries, including France, Spain and Portugal.. At 14, she was enrolled as a dancer at the Opera de Paris..In 1935, she married a virtual unknown who would become Hollywood's biggest box office attraction, Errol Flynn, with whom she had a son, Sean Flynn (born 1941). Following the marriage, she retired from the screen..During the Cambodian Civil War (Khmer Rouge Reign), her son Sean Flynn was working as a freelance photo journalist under contract to Time magazine when he and fellow journalist Dana Stone went missing on the road south of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on 6 April 1970..Fort Dodge traces its beginnings to 1850 when soldiers from the US Army erected a fort at the junction of the Des Moines River and Lizard Creek...

I think perhaps Homer described it better.. A creature with the form of a goddess, the walk of a queen and the heart of a tyrant..Gorman, about that Lucky 13..There's a legend that when the world began there were thirteen gods..Only twelve of them were acquainted with one another. So, to learn the stranger's identity, they invited him to a banquette.. And to their everlasting sorrow he came.. The thirteenth god was Death..That's a lot of information to give to a stranger..You're still a stranger to me..But I don't mind telling you..A real woman, a proper female kind of woman tries to perpetuate the legend that her touch is as rare as a fine jewel...https://forum.davidicke.com/showpost...&postcount=634

Arrow Royal Company of Archers


Private Archery club..
Quote:
The Royal Company of Archers is a ceremonial unit that serves as the Sovereign's Bodyguard in Scotland, a role it has performed since 1822 and the reign of King George IV, when the company provided a personal bodyguard to the King on his visit to Scotland.. It is currently known as the Queen's Bodyguard For Scotland, and is located in Edinburgh, the capital city..The Royal Company of Archers were granted the motto "Nemo me impune lacessit" by a Royal charter of Queen Anne, 1713..


The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)..

The Company's traditions relate to its reason for formation, the archery competition.. To further this, it offers 13 prizes that were at some time in the past competed for annually.. Many are retained to the present day..The Rules and Regulations of the Royal Company of Archers have never been printed, and, in fact, were never completed.. The society may, therefore, be considered as "lawless" when within the precincts of their shooting ground..


Gunpowder, Treason & Plot: Mary, Queen of Scots (1st of 2 videos) ..

The Archers' Hall is the club house of the Royal Company of Archers, the Sovereign's Bodyguard in Scotland.. It is located at 66 Buccleuch Street in the Southside of Edinburgh, and has been used by the company for over 230 years.. Building commenced on 15 August 1776, and was completed in 1777 to designs by Alexander Laing..The Archers is the world's longest-running radio soap opera..Originally billed as "an everyday story of country folk", it is now described as "contemporary drama in a rural setting"...

Lightbulb Anna Bolina


Copy of a portrait painted c. 1534..
Quote:
Anne was the daughter of Thomas Boleyn, later Earl of Wiltshire and Earl of Ormond, and his wife, Lady Elizabeth Howard, daughter of Thomas Howard, 2nd Duke of Norfolk.. Thomas Boleyn was a well respected diplomat with a gift for languages; he was also a favourite of King Henry VII, who sent him on many diplomatic missions abroad.. Anne and her siblings grew up at Hever Castle in Kent.. However, the siblings were born in Norfolk at the Boleyn home at Blickling.. A lack of parish records from the period has made it impossible to establish Anne's date of birth...Her birth was most likely sometime between 1501 and 1507..As with Anne herself, it is uncertain when her two siblings were born, but it seems clear that her sister Mary was older than Anne..Their brother George was born around 1504..The key piece of surviving written evidence is a letter Anne wrote sometime in 1514..She wrote it in French to her father, who was still living in England while Anne was completing her education at Mechelen, in the Burgundian Netherlands, now Begum/Belgium..Ives argues that the style of the letter and its mature handwriting prove that Anne must have been about 13 at the time of its composition, while Warnicke argues that the numerous misspellings and grammar errors show that the letter was written by a child..Ives's view, this would also be around the minimum age that a girl could be a maid of honour, as Anne was to the regent, Margaret of Austria (Governor of the Habsburg Netherlands) ..This is supported by claims by a chronicler from the late 16th century, who wrote that Anne was twenty when she returned from France..


Arms of the Boleyn family of London..

Anne's early education was typical for women of her class.. In 1513, Anne was invited to join the schoolroom of Margaret of Austria and her 4 wards.. Her academic education was limited to arithmetic, her family genealogy, grammar, history, reading, spelling, and writing.. She developed domestic skills such as dancing, embroidery, good manners, household management, music, needlework, and singing..Anne learned to play games, such as cards, chess, and dice. She was also taught archery, falconry, horseback riding, and hunting..Anne's father continued his diplomatic career under Henry VIII. In Europe, Thomas Boleyn's charm won many admirers, including Margaret of Austria, daughter of Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor..In France, Anne was a maid of honour to Queen Mary, and then to Mary's 15-year-old stepdaughter Queen Claude, with whom she stayed nearly se7en years..Anne exerted a powerful charm on those who met her, though opinions differed on her attractiveness.. The Venetian diarist Marino Sanuto, who saw Anne when Henry VIII met Francis I at Calais in October 1532..Anne knew little Latin but, trained at a French court, she was influenced by an "evangelical variety of French humanism" which led her to champion the vernacular Bible..Anne's European education ended in 1521, when her father summoned her back to England.. She sailed from Calais in January 1522..Anne was recalled to marry her Irish cousin, James Butler, a young man who was several years older than she and who was living at the English court, in an attempt to settle a dispute over the title and estates of the Earldom of Ormond.. The 7th Earl of Ormond died in 1515, leaving his daughters, Margaret Boleyn and Anne St Leger, as co-heiresses..


Anne Of A 1,000 Days excerpt ..

Anne made her début at the Château Vert (Green Castle) pageant in honour of the imperial ambassadors on 4 March 1522, playing "Perseverance"..According to Cavendish, Anne was sent from court to her family's countryside estates, but it is not known for how long. Upon her return to court, she again entered the service of Catherine of Aragon..In 1528, sweating sickness broke out with great severity..Henry's love letters to Anne suggest that their love affair remained unconsummated for much of their se7en-year courtship..Prior to her marriage to King Henry VIII, Anne had befriended Sir Thomas Wyatt, who was one of the greatest poets of the Tudor reign.. While Anne Boleyn was still King Henry's mistress in 1532, Wyatt accompanied the royal couple to Calais in France..She soon became pregnant..A year later, Anne Boleyn and the King were secretly married..Catherine was formally stripped of her title as queen and Anne was consequently crowned queen consort on 1 June 1533 in a magnificent ceremony at Westminster Abbey with a banquet afterwards..After her coronation, Anne settled into a quiet routine at the King's favourite residence, Greenwich Palace, to prepare for the birth of her baby. The child was born slightly prematurely on 7 September 1533.. Between 3 and four in the afternoon, Anne gave birth to a girl, who was christened Elizabeth, probably in honour of either or both Anne's mother Elizabeth Howard and Henry's mother, Elizabeth of York..But the birth of a girl was a heavy blow to her parents, since they had confidently expected a boy..Nevertheless, the infant princess was given a splendid christening, but Anne feared that Catherine's daughter, Mary, now stripped of her title of princess and labelled a bastard, posed a threat to Elizabeth's position..Henry soothed his wife's fears by separating Mary from her many servants and sending her to Hatfield House..The new queen had a larger staff of servants than Catherine..The king and his new queen enjoyed a reasonably happy accord with periods of calm and affection..She was once reported to have spoken to her uncle in words that "shouldn't be used to a dog".. After a stillbirth or miscarriage as early as Christmas 1534, Henry was discussing with Cranmer and Cromwell the possibility of divorcing her without having to return to Catherine..Nothing came of the issue as the royal couple reconciled and spent summer 1535 on progress.. By October, she was again pregnant..Her motto was "The most happy", and she had chosen a white falcon as her personal device..Anne was blamed for the tyranny of her husband's government and was referred to by some of her subjects as "The king's whore" or a "naughty paike [prostitute]".. Public opinion turned further against her following her failure to produce a son...

Arrow Peace bee Sweetheart


Portrait by Juan de Flandes thought to be of 11-year-old Catherine..
Quote:
On 8 January 1536, news of Catherine of Aragon's death reached the King and Anne, who were overjoyed..The following day, Henry and Anne wore yellow, the symbol of joy and celebration in England, from head to toe, and celebrated Catherine's death with festivities.. In Spain, the home country of Catherine of Aragon, yellow was the colour of mourning, in addition to black.. For this reason, the wearing of yellow by Henry and Anne may have been a symbol of mourning.. With Mary's mother dead, Anne attempted to make peace with her..Mary rebuffed Anne's overtures, perhaps because of rumours circulating that Catherine had been poisoned by Anne and/or Henry.. These began after the discovery during her embalming that her was blackened.. Modern medical experts are in agreement that this was not the result of poisoning, but of cancer of the heart, something which was not understood at the time..The Queen, pregnant again, was aware of the dangers if she failed to give birth to a son..With Catherine dead, Henry would be free to marry without any taint of illegality.. At this time Henry began paying court to Jane Seymour.. He gave her a locket with a miniature portrait of himself inside and Jane, in the presence of Anne, began opening and shutting it..Anne responded by ripping off the locket with such force her fingers bled..The Vatican looms large in the proverbs of the Roman populace..


Catherine watching Henry jousting in her honour after giving birth to a son..Henry's horse mantle is emblazoned with Catherine's initial letter, 'K'..

Later that month, the King was unhorsed in a tournament and knocked unconscious for two hours, a worrying incident that Anne believed led to her miscarriage 5 days later..Another possible cause of the miscarriage was an incident in which, upon entering a room, Anne saw Jane Seymour sitting on the lap of Henry.. After flying into a rage, Henry soothed her, saying "peace be sweetheart, and all will be well" ..Whatever the cause, on the day that Catherine of Aragon was buried at Peterborough Abbey, Anne miscarried a baby which, according to the imperial ambassador Eustace Chapuys, she had borne for about 3 and a half months, and which "seemed to be a male child"..Chapuys commented "She has miscarried of her saviour.".. In Chapuys' opinion, this loss was the beginning of the end of the royal marriage..Given Henry's desperate desire for a son, the sequence of Anne's pregnancies has attracted much interest..Most sources attest only to the birth of Elizabeth in September 1533, a possible miscarriage in the summer of 1534, and the miscarriage of a male child, of almost four months gestation, in January 1536..As Anne recovered from her miscarriage, Henry declared that he had been seduced into the marriage by means of "sortilege"—a French term indicating either "deception" or "spells".. His new mistress, Jane Seymour, was quickly moved into royal quarters..


The Other Boleyn Girl (11/11) - The Execution of Anne Boleyn (2008) HD ..

Anne's biographer Eric Ives believes that her fall and execution were primarily engineered by her former ally Thomas Cromwell, became involved in the royal marital drama only when Henry ordered him onto the case..On 2 May 1536, Anne was arrested and taken to the Tower of London by barge.. It is likely that Anne may have entered through the Court Gate in the Byward Tower rather than the Traitors' Gate..Four of the accused men were tried in Westminster on 12 May 1536.. Weston, Brereton, and Norris maintained their innocence and only the tortured Smeaton supported the Crown by pleading guilty..3 days later, Anne & George Boleyn were tried separately in the Tower of London, before a jury of 27 peers.. She was accused of adultery, incest, and high treason..Although the evidence against them was unconvincing, the accused were found guilty and condemned to darth.. George Boleyn and the other accused men were executed on 17 May 1536..The ermine mantle was removed and Anne lifted off her headdress, tucking her hair under a coif..After a brief farewell to her weeping ladies and a request for prayers, she kneeled down and one of her ladies tied a blindfold over her eyes..She knelt upright, in the French style of executions.. Her final prayer consisted of her repeating continually, "Jesu receive my soul; O Lord God have pity on my soul"..The execution consisted of a single stroke..She was then buried in an unmarked grave in the Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula.. Her skeleton was identified during renovations of the chapel in 1876, in the reign of Queen Victoria, and Anne's resting place is now marked in the marble floor..It is for this reason that I think the ghost of Anne Boleyn has been seen and sensed in several locations around the UK...

Lightbulb 13th Battalion London Regiment



Regimental crest of the London Regiment..
Quote:
The London Regiment is an infantry regiment in the British Army, part of the Army Reserve..It was first formed in 1908 in order to regiment the 26 Volunteer Force battalions in the newly formed County of London, each battalion having a distinctive uniform..Now part of the Territorial Force, the London Regiment expanded to 88 battalions in the First World War.. Of these, 49 battalions saw action in the trenches of the Western Front in France and Flanders, six saw action in the Gallipoli Campaign, 12 saw action at Salonika, 14 saw action against the Turks in Palestine, and one saw action in Waziristan and Afghanistan..The London Regiment was reformed in the Territorial Army in the 1920s but ceased to exist in 1938 and the battalions were all transferred to regular infantry regiments, the Royal Artillery & the Royal Engineers..

Two companies of the Royal Green Jackets, F Company and G Company, formed part of the regiment between 1998 and 2004..In May 2004 Messines company, which was made up from an HQ and two platoons from across the London Regiment deployed to Iraq..Following the restructuring of the British Army in 2004, it was announced that the Guards Division would gain a TA battalion..This saw the London Regiment retaining its name and multi-badge structure, while transferring from the Queen's Division to the Guards Division..The two RGJ companies were transferred to the Royal Rifle Volunteers in preparation for the formation of The Rifles in 2007..You see, my mule don't like people laughing..He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him..You see, I understand you men were just playin' around ..

The Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund, often known as TAFF, was created in 1953 for the purpose of providing funds to bring well-known and popular members of SciFi fandom familiar to fans on both sides of the ocean, across the Atlantic..The River Taff (Afon Taf) is a river in Wales.. It rises as two rivers in the Brecon Beacons, the Taf Fechan (Little Taff) and the Taf Fawr (Big Taff) before joining to form the Taff north of Merthyr Tydfil..In the early 1840s the South Wales Railway was trying to find a suitable site for a railway station, but the area that is now Cardiff Central railway station was prone to flooding..It was Isambard Kingdom Brunel's solution to divert the Taff to the west, creating a larger and safer site for the station..The Taf Fawr rises below Corn Du, south-west of Pen y Fan and flows south through Beacons Reservoir, Cantref Reservoir and Llwyn-on Reservoir..The river supports a number of migratory fish..On 13 October 1988, ProSieben Television GmbH was founded as a successor to Eureka TV...ProSieben uses an English slogan..We love to entertan you...

Lightbulb Border Regiment

Quote:

Troops of the Border Regiment resting in a front line trench in Thiepval Wood, France, August 1916..

Five men of the Border Regiment were awarded the Victoria Cross, all during the First World War..

Private James Alexander
Private Abraham Acton (21 December 1914)
Sergeant Edward John Mott (27 January 1917)..
Sergeant Charles Edward Spackman (20 November 1917)
Captain (Acting Lieutenant-Colonel) James Forbes-Robertson (11/12 April 1918)..

In October 1941, the brigade was selected to be converted to glider infantry, part of the British Army's newly-formed airborne forces, and became the 1st Glider Brigade, part of the 1st Airborne Division.. In this role, the battalion went to North Africa in May 1943 and in July it took part in Operation Ladbroke, part of the Allied invasion of Sicily, in which the battalion suffered heavy casualties, with some gliders being cast off too early due to inexperienced pilots and, as a result, many men were drowned..The 1st Airborne Division was all but destroyed..The battalion did not see active service for the rest of the war...

Border Regiment 9 July 1943, just prior to take off.. Note the folding airborne bicycle..


Operation Ladbroke was a glider landing by British airborne troops during the Second World War near Syracuse, Sicily, that began on 9 July 1943 as part of Operation Husky, the Allied invasion of Sicily.. The first Allied mission using large numbers of the aircraft, the operation was carried out from Tunisia by glider infantry of the British 1st Airlanding Brigade, commanded by Brigadier Philip Hicks, with a force of 136 Waco Hadrians and 8 Airspeed Horsas.. A second Royal Air Force transport group, No. 46, was formed and equipped solely with Douglas Dakotas, instead of the mixture of aircraft in No. 38 Group..Together, the Royal Air Force groups were capable of supplying 88 Albermarles, 88 Stirlings, 36 Halifaxes and 150 Dakotas, a total of 362 planes which did not include aircraft held as reserves..

The Coral - In The Morning ..

Unusually for the times, Ladbrokes' principal long time representative on British racecourses was a woman, Mrs. Helen Vernet.. Having joined the firm at behest of Arthur Bendir in 1919, she was made a partner in 1928 and remained with the firm until shortly before her death in 1956, at the age of 80..Following the end of World War II, the fortunes of Ladbrokes were in steady decline, brought about by a combination of an austere postwar economic climate, a dwindling client base, and reluctance to change the firm's specialised approach to bookmaking..As a result, in 1956, the company was acquired by Mark Stein and his then 28 year old nephew, Cyril Stein for a reported £100,000..In 1961, the government legalised betting shops under the Betting & Gaming Act...

Shiny Boots of Leather..

Bull polishing, bulling, spit polishing or spit shining refers to a method for polishing leather products in such a way as to give an extremely high shine effect.. It is commonly used in the military as a traditional method of presenting leather accessories (such as a Sam Browne belt) and boots for inspection.. The finished effect should leave the surface of the leather highly reflective...
