Loneliness

I just watched a feature about loneliness in old people and I had a thought that I want to write about. I was thinking that with the amount of old people who are trapped indoors, with nobody to see or speak to for days on end, there must be a way to change that, not only to benefit them, but to benefit others too.

The National Motorcycle Museum is recognised as the finest and largest British motorcycle museum in the world and originally opened its doors in October 1984 with a collection of 350 motorcycles on display.

The Museum owes its formation to the drive and ambition of one man, Mr WR (Roy) Richards. Roy passed away in 2008 but his work continues under the guardianship of Roy’s Widow Christine & Son’s Simon and Nick with The Museum collection now boasting some 1000 plus machines, fully restored to the manufacturers original specifications.

Situated in the picturesque countryside of Shropshire, RAF Cosford is not only home to No 1 School of Technical Training as part of the Defence School of Aeronautical Engineering but also No 1 Radio School, with both coming under the Defence College of Technical Training. The RAF School of Physical Training and the Defence School of Photography are also based here at Cosford.

It even has its own railway station with regular services to Wolverhampton, with onward connections to Birmingham, London and Shrewsbury. Continue reading

Dover Patrol Memorial

Dover

The Dover Patrol was a Royal Navy command of the First World War, notable for its involvement in the Zeebrugge Raid on 22 April 1918. The Dover Patrol formed a discrete unit of the Royal Navy based at Dover and Dunkirk for the duration of the First World War. Its primary task was to prevent enemy German shipping—chiefly submarines—from entering the English Channel en route to the Atlantic Ocean, thereby obliging the German Navy to travel via the much longer route around Scotland which was itself covered by the Northern Patrol.
