I am a retired bookbinder. I can speak/write fairly good German and Dutch. I live in northern England. I am fussy about the correct use of English.
I am seeking information about a medallion that was issued on 1st June 1913 to commemorate the centenary of the capture, by HMS Shannon, of USS Chesapeake off Boston MA. Does anyone happen to know how many medallions were issued and whom they were presented to? They were presented by 2 grand-daughters of the captain (Philip Broke) of the Shannon. The grand-daughters were Jane Ann (later Baroness de Saumarez) and Frederica Mary Horatia (later Lady Lambton Loraine). Any information will be gratefully received. One of the medallions can be seen at this link:2 AnswersHistory1 decade ago
Herr Gabriel said, in 2007, that an EU ban on incandescent light bulbs would save 25 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. Has anyone checked his figures, or is the EU blindly accepting what he said?2 AnswersGlobal Warming1 decade ago
I just wondered what the advantage is, and why all aircraft don't have that feature. Thank you in advance.7 AnswersAircraft1 decade ago
