Stafford in the Great War tells the fascinating story of a county town and its people between the catastrophic years of 1914–18 .The title was written as a companion volume to the author's earlier work, Stafford at War 1939-45, and adopts the same successful formula. The book examines the work of local men and women on the Home Front, before providing details of the towns contribution in every theatre of the war. Early chapters examine the role of Staffordians who served in the British Expeditionary Force, nicknamed The Contemptible Little Army by Kaiser Wilhelm II, and who took part in the Christmas Truce, 1914. The story of the Stafford Territorials of the Stafford Battery, the Staffordshire Yeomanry and the North and South Staffordshire Regiments is also explained, along with the fate of Kitcheners Volunteer Army.The events surrounding the service of a number of local men are recorded in some detail, along with the exploits of men who fought in all of the armed services and support units. Collectively, their stories help outline the course of the war.Staffordians won 120 gallantry awards during the conflict, and those that are not referred to in the main body of the text may be found in an appendix. Also listed are the names and service details of over 400 men whose names were omitted from the towns war memorial.

This book is a detailed daily narrative of the author's exploration of over 45 sites of antiquities in Ireland as well as beautiful gardens and estates and Ireland's major cities. These often remote sites still pepper the country today with astounding and beautiful ancient abbeys, castles, High Crosses, Round Towers, and medieval towns. This book is a search for these sites and what they can tell about the magic of Ireland. I spent many days traveling the small country roads to often inaccessible sites of antiquities in isolated fields, behind farmers barnyards, and near the coasts. I also explored the Celtic sites of kings and queens and their lost legacies forgotten in the mists of legendary castles and abbeys. I saw remnants in the current day Travelers, a group of people who chose to live on the fringes of society and seek to live independently. They also chose to live in scattered caravans in some of the most astoundingly beautiful places I have ever seen. I was enthralled by the undiscovered adventures of rambling on small country roads with sheep and cattle sharing the road with my small Opel Vectra car, and driving on the left and sitting in the right side of the car. The little shops and country people I discovered along the way were charming. The Irish countryside, unindustrialized and uncommercialized, is a mystique of changing colors of green fields mingled with little cottages and huge country manors. Sometimes lost among this beauty, I stopped to gaze upon time-honored Celtic High Crosses, or swans upon a lake, or ducks on a river, or border collies waiting at the threshold of a hundred farm cottages, or to ponder how such a beautiful place could remained unspoiled in the mist. I journeyed into the City of Dublin with its River Liffey and the stone bridges that looked like medieval sites in the mist. Dublin has a haunting blend of majestic stone buildings, a remote age castle, green flowered parks, and old antique shops that created a city lost in time. Its hustle and bustle, world-famous theater, and unique shopping opportunities, made walking its streets worthy of many days ramblings. This journal also covers a weekend exploring the majestic great castle ruins of Northern Wales and visiting three castles that are World Heritage Sites. My travels were so overwhelming, I will let each day speak for itself to the readers of this book.

Concerns about mortality and the standard of care provided at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust resulted in an investigation by the Healthcare Commission which published a highly critical report in March 2009, followed by two reviews commissioned by the Department of Health. These investigations gave rise to widespread public concern and a loss of confidence in the Trust, its services and management. This Inquiry was set up primarily to give those most affected by poor care an opportunity to tell their stories and to ensure that the lessons learned were fully taken into account in the rebuilding of confidence in the Trust. The evidence received about the patient experience covered many areas of basic nursing and medical care, communication and discharge management. The culture of the Trust was not conducive to providing good care for patients or providing a supportive working environment for staff due to: attitudes of patients and staff; bullying; target-driven priorities; disengagement from management; low staff morale; isolation from the wider NHS community; lack of openness; acceptance of poor standards of conduct; reliance on external assessments; denial. The report also looks at the management of significant issues - ward reconfiguration, finance, staff cuts - governance, staff review, the Board, mortality statistics and external organisations. Major themes identified by the Inquiry are: focus on process not outcomes; failure to listen to complaints; insufficient attention to maintenance of professional standards; lack of support for staff; failure to meet the challenge of care for the elderly; lack of transparency; disregard of the significance of mortality statistics.

This guidebook to UK's ultimate challenge walk, the End to End, describes a 1956km (1215 mile) walking route from Land's End in Cornwall to John o' Groats in Scotland's far north - the two points on mainland Britain that are the furthest apart. The recommended route avoids road walking as much as possible and frequently takes advantage of existing long-distance trails, including the South West Coast Path, Pennine Way and West Highland Way. Passing through remote terrain at times and keeping to the hills where practical, it is intended for experienced hill-walkers. The guide includes route description and maps, concentrating on the 'gaps' between the major long-distance trails covered in other Cicerone guides. There is also a wealth of advice to help you prepare for and undertake your walk, covering equipment, safety, supplies and facilities. Notes on history, geography and local sights, along with anecdotes from those who have successfully completed the journey, add interest and inspiration. The route is presented in 61 daily stages (each averaging around 32km), divided into 6 sections; an alternative three-month schedule is also provided. The End to End Trail promises a magnificent adventure through some of the best the British countryside can offer, and a unique sense of achievement on completion of your walk.
