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. One common phenomenon that prevailed in all these has been that of uplifting the image of nursing. This progress is attributed to the recognition accorded nursing by the society due to unique and essential contributions mad ...

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 ...
