We were just taking off from Paddington for a diversionary sweep when the airfield was attacked without any warning whatsoever by a gaggle of bomb-carrying Focke Wulf s. Half a dozen of us were airborne, but the rest were still on the runway when the bombs fell, but fortunately they did not do any serious damage. I was about to land back again with a duff engine, but when I saw the bombs fall I immediately set off in hot pursuit of the invaders. I did not have much hope of catching them as the s had the legs on us at ground level and they had a head start from their dive, not to mention my duff engine.
I chased them up the Beja road towards Tabarka, but the further we went the further they got ahead, so I eventually gave up the attempt and turned back for home.

February 3, at 7: That said, I do really think Foster and Garrett are the 2 players in this draft that immediately make the 49ers better. Oh how I long for the days of Willis and Bowman dominating the middle like they did for those special couple of seasons. However, Zay Jones just might. Grade A Gallman is a nice, well rounded RB, although there is a real concern about his ability in pass protect. I like his motor, and tanacity. Of course, Garrett is a special player who dominates a lot of matchups, but this gives a glimpse of what type of issues will have at the next level.
That said, you have him mocked just right in terms of value, but I do have some reservations about this pick despite his obvious size. Would I be happy with him slotted here? And he and Kermit Whitfield seem like the same guy to me, what do you think? C- Jarod Evens is an interesting prospect. Coming out of Trinity Valley, Evans was ranked as a 4-star recruit by Scout.

QB Jay Cutler. Lynch likes Cutler, and if anyone him make him an above-average quarterback it’s Kyle is the best stopgap QB the 49ers can get (Tony Romo probably would rather retire than join a rebuilding team). DE DeMarcus Ware.

Origin[ edit ] A Turkish chichak helmet 16th century , ancestral to the later lobster-tailed pot helmet. It was adopted by the Christian states of Europe in the early 17th century. The chichak was almost identical to the later European helmets – it had a forward projecting peak, sliding bar nasal, cheekpieces and neck guard; only its tendency to have a conical rather than rounded skull was distinctive.
Characteristics[ edit ] English helmet for a harquebusier c. The skulls of English-made helmets were usually formed from two sections, joined by a raised comb running from front to back; the skulls of helmets manufactured on the continent were most often raised from a single-piece of metal. Cheekpieces, commonly made in one piece but occasionally articulated, were attached to the skull by leather strapping; however, the better quality examples are sometimes hinged.
To protect the face there was either a fixed forward projecting peak that incorporated a sliding nasal bar retained by a large screw, or a hinged peak with three attached bars. Finally, the helmet had a laminated defence or a single-piece of plate ridged to imitate separate lames to protect the back of the head and neck that was said to resemble the tail of a lobster.
Occasionally, older helmets like the burgonet or sallet were modified to resemble the ‘lobster-pot. The face protection is in the form of an openwork depiction of the royal coat-of-arms The appearance and finish of lobster-tailed pots varied greatly, from the highly decorated, superb-quality examples made for individual commanders down to crudely executed “munition-quality” types, which were mass-produced to equip large numbers of ordinary cavalry troopers.
An extant helmet made for King James II of England had the three bar face defence replaced by a pierced openwork plate depicting the full royal arms of England, sight being afforded by spaces within the design. Many helmets were blackened or browned as a treatment to weatherproof them and protect against rust. The better quality helmets given this treatment would often have had their sombre appearance relieved by the use of numerous gilded rivet heads. Some of the most flamboyantly decorated helmets were produced for the Polish winged hussars , with metal crests and enlarged, decoratively shaped, nasals being not uncommon.
In Flanders they had pushed back the British to positions which were, on an average, to the rear of those occupied in On the Somme they had more than neutralised all the Allied gains of , and were stretched now from Arras to Montdidier, covering ground which they had not touched since the early days of the war. On the Aisne they had reconquered all that the French had so laboriously won in three campaigns, and were back along the Marne and within gun-shot of Paris.
These results had been achieved in three great battles which had cost the Allies some , prisoners and nearly guns. In July it would have seemed that the German Empire was victorious, and yet ere the year had ended the very name had changed its meaning in the map of Europe, and was known only in the list of evil things which have had their day and then have passed.

The gunfire was intense, and the casualties were heavy, but the Lieutenant went on firing in spite of his wounds, until he was hit for the fifth time and was carried away to a place of safety where he died. The force of the explosion caused her to sink within minutes with the loss of men. First man to be shot for desertion Private Thomas Highgate, a year-old of Shoreham, Kent, was the first of soldiers to be shot at dawn for desertion in the war. Under the guise of going to the toilet he had fled his detachment of the First Battalion Royal West Kent Regiment, and took refuge in the grounds of a French chateau.
He was found hiding in civilian clothes a few hours later. A court martial ordered his execution and he was shot by a firing squad in front of his comrades at 7. In , all those shot for desertion during the First World War received an official pardon. First trench dug In the wake of the Battle of Marne, on September 15, , both sides started digging the trenches that came to define the war.
By Christmas, the rival lines snaked from the Belgian coast near Nieuport to the Franco-Swiss border at Belfort, a labyrinth of devastation miles long. The trenches were often given familiar names by soldiers as a way of humanising the horrors of the frontline.

Head-wounds have been more than usually numerous during the war, owing to the trench-fighting , and more than usually severe, owing to the extensive use of shrapnel. But the danger, although it cannot be avoided, can be minimised. Our Army has now followed the French by adopting steel helmets, calculated to stop shell-splinters and shrapnel. Even in cases of extreme risk, not only has death been avoided, but injuries have been confined to bruises or superficial wounds. Cases have occurred in which the wearers have been hit, but saved by these helmets from what without them would have meant certain death.

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. Tergiversate This rare word was chosen to represent because it described so much of the world around us.
Tergiversate means “to change repeatedly one’s attitude or opinions with respect to a cause, subject, etc. And so, we named tergiversate the Word of the Year.
