In fact there are details within the report that really sadden the heart. The speed with which the fire took hold was graphically described as faster than a man could run. The wood roof covered with tarpaulin and sealed with asphalt itself rapidly took fire; the burning asphalt added its own fuel to the flames and injury to the spectators. The presence of the roof itself caused the fire to spread horizontally at a very fast speed. The problem of communication at Bradford, as indeed elsewhere, is that the personal radio sets are only devised for one officer to speak at a time.
Thus an officer seeking to send a message calls control. If another officer seeks to speak at the same time, the effect will be that neither officer can be properly understood by control. In a written submission to the Inquiry made by the Fire Brigades Union it was suggested that the water supplies adjacent to the ground were insufficient to deal with the severity of fire, and that it was the normal practice for water authorities to restrict the meter supplies at weekends.
Two letters were then drafted on behalf of the Council to be sent to the Club, the first dated 11 July read as follows: He Stafford Heginbotham was aware of litter being able to accumulate when kick boards were knocked off but he said it would have been a major task, almost a dismantling of the stand, to have removed the litter that was likely to have gone under the broken kick boards. He accepted that it should not have been there, but said that the cost would have been considerable and it would have been a major task.
The stand had been there for 75 years. By irony, it was the second to last game before the timber flooring would have been replaced by concrete. That work would have started on the following Monday.
A History: ’s Word of the Year
There are a number of methods by which a rifle can be dated, or at least bracketed between certain years of manufacture. For the latter, dates of introduction of military arms can be located within the Government “List of Changes” LoCs as can dates of obsolescence and of modification or upgrade to later marks. You may not necessarily find specific date information within the text of particular pages, but often the images of advertisements or catalogue entries contain some dating ‘give-away’, such as the year in which a particular rifle achieved a notable competition score by someone, but which data is in graphic format and therefore not “searchable” by a text search engine.
Do not briefly glance over a page and assume that the information you require is not there. It may not be immediately obvious, but careful observation may provide you with the information for which you are looking. Such research is a major part of the joy of owning, collecting and shooting classic or historic rifles.
Egypt was also home to Imhotep the first man of science in recorded history.
Dairy cows were introduced to by English settlers in the early s. Meat cows were introduced by Spanish settlers. Cattle were kept primarily for dairy production and were slaughtered and eaten only when they could no longer be maintained through the winter. This pattern was long established As early as live cattle were driven to Boston, where they commanded high prices By the nineteenth century, the United States was famous for meat-eating as England had already become by the seventeenth century
Visited my GP in October for a flow reduction problem. Referred to the prostrate clinic where after an unsuccessful treatment with drugs I was further referred to Colchester Hospital and a doctor who advised me after examination that the best course was a HoLep and that this would eliminate my discomfort. Phone call within a week to arrange a premed which although over an hour long was reassuring and carried out with great skill.
Six days later arrived at Lots of further tests.

History of Technology Heroes and Villains – A little light reading Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved.
You may find the Search Engine , the Technology Timeline or the Hall of Fame quicker if you are looking for something or somebody in particular. Scroll down and see what treasures you can discover. Background We think of a battery today as a source of portable power, but it is no exaggeration to say that the battery is one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind.
Staff Best wishes for the Reunion and my apologies for not being able to join you this year.
The station had closed in , but would happily reopen a year after this picture was taken. It is clear from the colour of the track that this is the first train to venture this way for some time! It is not only the passengers who are enjoying the day out, as the Class 37 has five people in the cab! I don’t often bother to photograph light engines, but made an exception here to show off the lead locomotive’s unusual livery.
Note the ‘classic’ British Rail Leyland lorry employed in rebuilding work on the site of the former Severn Tunnel depot. Unfortunately this was running over an hour late, which meant that the light had virtually gone.
History of Hertfordshire

The finds of flint tools date back , years,  long before Britain became an island. People have probably lived in the land now called Hertfordshire for about 12, years, since the Mesolithic period  in Ware making Ware one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe.
Wonderful crystal clear view without a mark on this one.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan.
But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change? Has there been too much? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome.

He told the Guardian: This map released by cybersecurity experts, shows the impact of the ransomware around the world – with blue dots showing where attacks have been made. Russia is thought to be the worst affected, while Taiwan fears being the victim of a second wave.
In fact this particular locomotive was no stranger to this working, in addition to being used for a week in , it also saw service on the train during the previous year.
Luckily it also left me with a small team of like-minded ex-students and staff, and we continued to meet regularly and gradually started to put our ideas into practice. We started small and some of the initial Reunions were very demoralising as attendance was occasionally pretty poor. So to the present day — we have a thriving association, an annual newsletter which, as you will see from this edition, is packed with news and memories, and are extremely fortunate indeed to have the active support of the Head and senior management of the present Plashet School.
Their support has been crucial to our success as it enables to base our Reunions held once every 2 years in the school buildings, a privilege which many other Old Students Associations would give their eye-teeth for!! On our part we sponsor the present students of Plashet School through our annual awards system and from time to time use some of our funds when they are looking healthy enough!! We have also built up very detailed databases of contact details for our members and a system which members can use to trace old friends.
I have also designed us a POSA website containing all the basic info. The Reunion was based in the hall of the Plashet building and once again was extremely well attended approx. I have been able to almost fill two complete albums with the photos, info. Moore, which is a factual account of a year in the life of an exchange teacher at EHGS.
