Suicide Clubs

Brigadier-General Sir James Edmonds wrote about preparations for the Battle of the Somme in his unpublished memoir.

“There was one 6-inch howitzer to about 45 yards of front, the French had one for every 20 yards; and, worse still, much of the howitzer ammunition supplied by the Ministry of Munitions (under Mr. Lloyd George) was defective, resulting not only in “duds”, as I was able to verify when I walked over the field, but also in “prematures” (bursts in the howitzer), so that the gun crews came, as the Official History states, to be called “suicide clubs”. To shift the blame, L.G. said I repeat, that the Royal Artillery “did not know how to use the perfect ammunition with which he had supplied them.”

The Real Rainbow … the photo was taken at around 30k ft above the Earth. On the ground, we usually only see the arc half of the circle.


The Grand Order of Muskies

There are many “Shellbacks”, “Blue Noses” and “Golden Dragons” but perhaps the rarest Navy certificate is the “Grand Order of Muskies”. It can only be earned by submariners who have submerged in all 5 Great Lakes. The crew of USS Corsair accomplished the feat in 1959.

  1. Saudi Arabia’s grand irrigation project. The problem is when you use up all of the available water, you are back to herding goats. If only there was a way to desalinate salt water and applying it without ruining the soil. I was unaware that the center pivot has only been around since 1948.

  2. The rainbow may be my new screen saver, breathtaking.

    Loyd George. Typical successful politician; shifts the blame to someone else.

    • Likely not. Though I’m sure that many thought of making the request.
