Winter is here, says the Army As the clocks change and autumnal gales begin to blast the British Isles, the Army has decided that winter is here. Soldiers guarding prestigious locations, such as Buckingham Palace, St James’s Palace, The Tower of London, Windsor Castle and the Queen’s Life Guard at Horse Guards, were given the go ahead to appear in ‘winter order’ from 0800 hours on 27 October. Winter order sees the iconic red tunics of the Foot Guards covered by the Athol grey, great coat and the mounted troops of the Household Cavalry adopt their blue and red capes. The red uniforms now appear only as ceremonial dress, but in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, soldiers would wear them in battle. The great coat was a much needed item of clothing in freezing conditions in Russia and northern Europe. It was worn for warmth in the Crimean War in the 1850s, with the red tunic underneath. As temperatures drop soldiers welcome the warmth of an additional layer as they stand guard. First on du ...

On October 25, 1854, the commander-in-chief of British troops during the Crimean War issued an ambiguous order that his subordinates misinterpreted, resulting in the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade against a heavily defended Russian position. Facing artillery and musket fire on three sides, British cavalrymen were slaughtered in droves as they galloped headlong down the so-called “valley of death.” Yet because they maintained discipline amid the chaos and even managed to briefly scatter the Russians, the British public glorified them. One participant would later describe it as “the most magnificent assault known in military annals and the greatest blunder known to military tactics.” A major conflict of the 19th century, the Crimean War claimed at least 750,000 lives, more than even the American Civil War, and had a profound impact on such renowned personalities as British nurse Florence Nightingale and Russian author Leo Tolstoy. It got its start in and around Jerusalem, then part of the Otto ...

EVOLUTION AND CRISES IN NURSING EDUCATION IN NIGERIA Introduction We cannot talk about Nursing Education in Nigeria without mentioning the history and growth of Nursing generally. This will help us to understand our past, plan for the future and ensure professional advancement and excellence in Nursing education and practice. Nursing as it is today started though the efforts of Florence Nightingale during the Crimean War (Ndatsu, 2004) Nursing in Nigeria has evolved through several philosophical eras in the last decade. Having passed through the Nurses’ Ordinance of 1947/1959, Registration of Nurses Regulation of 1962 and the legal status of as a professional *** trade union organization, trade Union Decree 21 and 22 of 1978, Decree 54 of 1989 and recently amended decree 54 of 1992.

The Children’s BBC’s Horrible Histories was criticized for inaccurately portraying Crimean War nurse Florence Nightingale racially discriminating fellow nurse, Jamaican-born Mary Seacole, in one of its short clips. An episode of Horrible Histories, a comedy program aimed at showing the shady, appalling and at times scatological side of history, showed Nightingale reject the application made by Mary Seacole for her nursing corps four times because she was from Jamaica and the unit was just “for British girls”. The said sketch was originally part of the Vile Victorians series showed way back in 2010 and was then featured in BBC’s website, Learning Zone. The particular piece showed a fictional Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole visit a whimsical PR consultant to talk about their respective images. The sketch further went on to show the two actresses discuss how Nightingale went down ...

May 25, 2014 Zephaniah 3:17 "The LORD your God is with you. He is a hero who saves you. He happily rejoices over you, renews you with His love and celebrates over you with shouts of joy." History is loaded with heroes and heroines. Florence Nightingale was honored for revolutionizing nursing care during the Crimean War. Rosa Parks was respected for refusing to sit at the back of the bus at the beginnings of the Civil Rights movement and Marie Curie admired for the discovery of radium and polonium. Or maybe your hero is the nurse in the ER who stayed with you through a difficult time. Heroes often reflect similar traits: courage, determination, a desire for justice. That is why children love to pretend to be heroes. One compound word, however, sums up a hero's mandatory trait: self-sacrifice! They often face health problems, incarceration, life-threatening situations, or death for their causes. How does God fit into the above description of heroes? That is easy. He gave His son Jesus to save ...
As women we stand on the backs of the likes of Professor Wangari Maathai, the first African Woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for the work she did in raising on Environmental Issues, Benazir Bhutto, the first woman elected as Prime Minister of Pakistan and indeed the first woman elected to lead a Muslim State. We celebrate the life of the black nurse Mary Seacole who with sheer grit and determination established a hospital on the battlefields of the Crimean War caring for British Soldiers during the 19th century and Aung San Suu Kyi, the Political activist and campaigner who has fought tirelessly for democracy in Burma. And what about young Malala Yousafzi who at the age of just 16 has fought passionately for the rights of young girls and women to be educated in the Swat District of Pakistan and for which she was the victim of an assassination attempt. I'm sure that you can add to this list of amazing women who have transformed their communities and in turn our world. No doubt they'll include women n ...
As President Vladimir Putin mobilises soldiers on Russia's Ukrainian border and NATO threatens consequences for any interference in eastern Ukraine, the atmosphere of angry rhetoric and brinkmanship seems frighteningly similar to the imperial squabbles of the 19th century that led to the Crimean War. While often thought of as a minor war, nearly 600,000 soldiers died between 1853 and 1856 in the Crimean War; a largely inconclusive conflict that few of them understood. The memoirs of William Howard Russell, a war correspondent who witnessed the Crimean War, were recently translated into Russian and published by Lenizdat, allowing Russians to refresh their collective memory on the war and see events through the eyes of a former enemy. Indeed, a read of Russell's memoirs offers many lessons for the modern reader. As soldiers mobilize near Ukraine, the 19th-century Crimean War seems less and less like ancient history. Any reader of the book will quickly recognize the similar circumstances between the Crimean ...
Last week’s theatrical crisis in Ukraine has quickly transformed itself into a restaging of the Crimean War of 1853-56, when Russia fought the Ottoman Empire and its European allies over control of the strategic peninsula that juts into the Black Sea. Only this time, light operatic moments are popping up in the repeat performance, as Washington has joined London and NATO to castigate Russia with pointed words but no hint of bayonets. “Russia has engaged in a military act of aggression against another country,” Secretary of State John Kerry declared. “The sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Ukraine has been violated,” UK Foreign Minister William Hague said. “I have convened the North Atlantic Council today because of Russia’s military action in Ukraine,” NATO Secretary General Fogh Rasmussen said, “and because of President (Vladimir) Putin’s threat against this sovereign nation.” These ominous words followed Russia’s decision to secure its Black Sea fleet at Sevastopol and ...

Wing Commander Guy Penrose Gibson, DSO and Bar, DFC and Bar, was awarded the Victoria Cross by His Majesty King George VI at a ceremony at RAF Scampton. Wing Commander Gibson received the meal for his leadership of No. 617 Squadron, The Dambusters, during Operation Chastise, the attack on Germany’s Ruhr Valley hydroelectric dams, 16–17 May 1943. The Victoria Cross ranks with the George Cross as the United Kingdom’s highest award for gallantry. The first British medal to be created for bravery, the Victoria Cross was instituted in 1856, with the first recipients being personnel honoured for their gallantry during the Crimean War. The bronze Cross, which bears the inscription “For Valour”, is cast from the metal of Russian guns captured at Sevastopol during the Crimean campaign. It is awarded “for most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy.” r/max
Battlefield Balaklava celebrates 70th anniversary of liberation from Nazis: This secluded harbor has been a favored haunt of mariners since at least the time of the ancient Greeks, and it has witnessed countless battles between those vying to possess it. The Battle of Balaklava during the Crimean War is well known for the Thin Red Line action by Scotland's Sutherland Highlanders red-coated 93rd Regiment against the Russian cavalry on 25 October 1854. During World War II there were two bloody encounters at the location: first when the Soviet troops defended and lost it in 1941-1942, and then when the Soviet troops returned to drive the Nazis out of the Crimea in April 1944. The battle for the city of Sevastopol started even before the Germans crossed the border with the Soviet Union, as German planes bombed the city at 3:15 in the morning of June 22, 1941. By October German troops were in Crimea. The Siege of Sevastopol lasted for 250 days, with Balaklava becoming a crucial point of defense of the city. Du ...
I've managed to learn about the Crimean War, Russia in WW2 and watch The Hobbit and Thor in the same day. I'd say that deserves something
almost 1/3 of the male population in the parishes of Whitegate, Aghada, and Farsid in County Cork, Ireland died while fighting in the British Army in the Crimean War 1853 - 56. I guess that even serving in the British army in their imperial wars seemed preferable to dying in the potato famine at home.
"The Crimean war transformed the region. Because of battles, population exchanges, and nationalist movements incited by the war, the present-day states of Ukraine, Moldova, Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, and regions such as Crimea and the Caucasus all changed in small or large ways due to this conflict."

From: Women's History Also known as: Lady with the Lamp; Flo Florence Nightingale Biography: Born to a comfortable family, Florence Nightingale was educated by governesses and then by her father, with her older sister, Parthenope. She was familiar with the Greek and Latin classical languages, and modern languages of French, German, and Italian. She also studied history, grammar, and philosophy. At twenty, she overcame parental objections to receive tutoring in mathematics. Called to a Mission in Life: On February 7, 1837, Florence Nightingale heard, by her account, the voice of God telling her that she had a mission in life. It took her some years of searching to identify that mission. This was the first of four occasions where Florence Nightingale said she heard the voice of God. By 1844, over parental objections, Florence Nightingale chose a different path than the social life and marriage expected of her by her parents -- she chose to work in nursing, which was then not quite a respectable prof ...

For those who have read this, a soft reminder; to those who have not, you might enjoy it. (MUSIC) Our story today is called "Luck." It was written by Mark Twain. Here is Shep O’Neal with the story. (MUSIC) SHEP O’NEAL: I was at a dinner in London given in honor of one of the most celebrated English military men of his time. I do not want to tell you his real name and titles. I will just call him Lieutenant General Lord Arthur Scoresby. I cannot describe my excitement when I saw this great and famous man. There he sat, the man himself, in person, all covered with medals. I could not take my eyes off him. He seemed to show the true mark of greatness. His fame had no effect on him. The hundreds of eyes watching him, the worship of so many people did not seem to make any difference to him. Next to me sat a clergyman, who was an old friend of mine. He was not always a clergyman. During the first half of his life he was a teacher in the military school at Woolwich. There was a strange look in his eye as he ...
True Charity When thou doest alms let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth. – Matt 6:3 There are some people who want every good thing they do well advertised. If they give money to some good cause, they want to have it noticed in the papers. If they are kind to the poor or relieve some case of distress, they are particular that the matter should be duly published. They take pains that their charities shall not fail to be credited to themselves. But this is not the kind of spirit our Lord enjoined on His disciples. He told them that seeking publicity marred the beauty of their alms-giving; that instead of announcing to all men what they had done, they should not even let their own left hand know that their right hand had been doing commendable things. Of course Christ did not mean that we should not be good before people, that we should never give alms save where the act would be absolutely secret. It is the motive that Christ was enforcing. His disciples should never give for the sake of me ...
A little light can be a part of a big change; a difference; a movement. That little light brought a revolution of change during the Crimean war. That little light was believed, relied on by a lady, Florence Nightingale. Never was the dim glow underestimated. It was carried and with the help of the l...

On federalism, Ukraine, rhetoric & accountability: It started with the EU’s ill-conceived attempt at self-landing Ukraine unilaterally into a more positive and sustainable future, presumably, for the common good. I’d like to cite two examples of the softening power of federalism. First, Henry Kissinger in ‘Diplomacy’ (1994) wrote about the lack of political culture of moderation in the militaristic Germany, united by Bismarck as a Greater Prussia. This critical flaw wouldn’t dissipate and would ultimately make Germany want to go to war. Our great poet and thinker Fyodor Tyutchev, who spent 20 years in Munich as a diplomat, wrote in the late 1840s that there was no room in Europe for a united Germany as an empire, only as a federation. History proved him right, but it took two world wars to arrive at the rational solution. It also proves that such issues are of legitimate interest to others. The history of the first German unification bears witness to something else. The Crimean War, unleashed fo ...
