In memory of just one soldier of over 300,000, who were slaughtered at the Somme in 1916,LONDON.jpg?itok=l5KXO9be


Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, 
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, 
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs 
And towards our distant rest began to trudge. 
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots 
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind; 
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of tired, outstripped Five-Nines that dropped behind.
Gas! Gas! Quick, boys! – An ecstasy of fumbling, 
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time; 
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling, 
And flound'ring like a man in fire or lime . . . 
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light, 
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning. 
In all my dreams, before my helpless sight, 
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning. 
If in some smothering dreams you too could pace 
Behind the wagon that we flung him in, 
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face, 
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin; 
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood 
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, 
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud 
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, 
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest 
To children ardent for some desperate glory, 
The old Lie; 'Dulce et Decorum est 
Pro patria mori'.

Location Information

Grandcourt is a village about 12 kilometres north-east of Albert.

The Cemetery (signposted in the centre of village) lies about one kilometre south of Grandcourt, some 500 metres along a single track lane (suitable for cars) off the road (D151) Grandcourt-Thiepval.

Historical Information

The village of Grandcourt was reached by men of the 36th (Ulster) Division on the 1st July 1916, but it could not be held. It was occupied by the 63rd (Royal Naval) Division on the 7th February 1917, after a series of local attacks begun in November 1916. Stump Road Cemetery was made by the 7th Buffs in the following month.

There are now over 250, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, over one-fifth are unidentified (mostly 18th Division men). All fell in the period July 1916 to February 1917.

The Cemetery covers an area of 399 square metres and is enclosed by a low wall.,%20GRANDCOURT


"The Reserve Army commander Lieutenant-General Sir Hubert Gough ordered the attack for 26 September at 12:35 p.m., to push the Germans off the high ground of the Thiepval Ridge, from Courcelette 6,000 yards (5,500 m) west to Schwaben Redoubt, by the Canadian Corps under Lieutenant-General Julian Byng and II Corps commanded by Lieutenant-General Claud Jacob, each with two divisions in the attack. Three stages were set for the advance, with halts of ten minutes and one hour before the final advance. The Canadian Corps was to provide a flank guard on the right, by taking the German trenches on the spur north-west of Courcelette, the right of II Corps was to take Zollern Redoubt Zollern-Feste in the second stage of the advance and Stuff Redoubt at the final objective on the crest of the ridge. On the left the corps was to take Thiepval in the second stage and then reach Schwaben Redoubt, which overlooked the slope down to St Pierre Divion. It was emphasised that the Germans were to be driven off all the crest, to deny the Germans observation towards Albert and gain observation of the Ancre valley. The German front line west of Thiepval was to be captured during the advance.[3]

"Orders for the capture of more objectives and to gain ground at every opportunity, were issued on 28 September and were intended to combine with the Fourth Army attacks planned for early October, which became known as the Battle of Le Transloy; Stuff and Schwaben redoubts were to be captured by 29 September and Stuff Trench by 1 October.[8]"

"The German front position on the south face of Thiepval was about 300 yards (270 m) in front of the village; about 1,000 yards (910 m) back was the second line, Staufen Riegel ("Stuff Trench" to British troops and "Regina Trench" to the Canadians) about 1,000 yards (910 m) and another 1,000 yards (910 m) further back was the third line,Grandcourt Riegel (Grandcourt Trench). The cellars under Thiepval Château had been extended into a complex of tunnels, used as storehouses and shelters. A sunken road running up the middle of the village to the cemetery, had been lined with dug-outs and in the original front-line to the west were 144 deep dug-outs.[6]"

"On 28 September, a cavalry patrol moved forward on the right of the 6th Brigade, 2nd Canadian Division at dawn but was quickly stopped by machine-gun fire. The brigade dug in facing north-east beyond the German practice trenches and a battalion advanced north up Courcelette Trench, meeting much German machine-gun fire from Regina Trench."

"On 29 September, the 8th Brigade from the 3rd Canadian Division attacked at noon with the 11th Division on the left and reached Hessian Trench in places, which were lost and then regained during German shelling and counter-attacks. In the II Corps area, the 11th Division attacked Stuff Redoubt and Hessian Trench to the right, most of which was captured and touch gained with the Canadians, while the attack on the redoubt failed. After battalion reliefs in the 18th Division, a bombing fight began around 7:30 a.m. along the western edge of Schwaben Redoubt, which lasted all day; the ground gained could not be held and the battalion later relieved troops in the captured German front system. On 30 September, the 11th Division resumed the attack on Stuff Redoubt at 4:00 p.m., with bombing parties advancing west along Hessian Trench and along ZollernTrench, which by nightfall had taken the southern half of the redoubt. Canadian bombers assisted the capture of Hessian Trench and the division was relieved by the 25th Division overnight. A dawn counter-attack drove the 18th Division from the south and west sides of Schwaben Redoubt; the south side was recaptured and the north side of the redoubt was taken at4:00 p.m. Another German attack at 9:00 p.m. retook the north face, up to the entrance to Stuff Trench on the right.[20]"


The Great War - a war that changed everything!

IT'S ALMOST 100 YEARS since the First World War started.

It began on July 28 1914 with the UK entering the conflict at midnight on August 4 1914 following the invasion of Belgium by Germany. The total number of military and civilian casualties exceeded 37 million - more than 16 million deaths and 20 million wounded - ranking it among the deadliest conflict in human history.

Prior to her sudden death, Ruth Flower wrote her memoir about her mother's family with five sons that enlisted in the 1914/18 war. A war which finished forever a way of life which had continued almost unaltered for centuries.

"My mother, Amy Beatrice Beish, nee Veater, had five brothers who enlisted in the 14/18 war. Mother, the youngest of 9 children, was born at Chew Magna, her father was the local saddler. The family home is still there - it is now an Estate Agent's office.

"Arthur, mother's eldest brother who was also a saddler, did not enlist in the Army. He lived at Pensford and tended the pit ponies at Pensford Pit until its closure.

"Three of mother's brothers, Walter, George and Leonard emigrated to Canada in the early 1900's and enlisted in 1914 or 1915 when they were sent to train at a military camp at Niagara.  "Two other brothers, Percy and Morris who lived at Chew Magna, also enlisted. "Certainly four of them were sent to the Somme. I am not quite sure where Morris served.

I enclose part of a letter that Leonard wrote to my mother from the camp at Niagara. (Will not copy to here unfortunately) Sadly the letter to Mother was not treasured as she had treasured it. I happened to find this partpage when I cleared out my sister's house after her death.

"Leonard was mother's favourite brother. He had wanted her to go with them when they went to Canada. I still have a gold locket that he sent to Mother. I know he also sent her a ring and a watch; they are lost I imagine.

"I visit France quite often these days and one day I was speaking to a friend there and told her about my mother's brothers who came to France to fight in the 14/18 war. I told her about Mother's brother who was killed at the Somme and how she was always upset at the Armistice services and that I had promised mother that if I ever had the opportunity I would find his grave and visit the cemetery. This was, of course, years before computers and there seemed little likelihood of it happening.

My friend said, "Ruth, I was born in the area. Find the details and I will take you there". "Now with computers, we are able to search for information and I did. I found the grave's location and its plot number. I took the information to France and my friend drove me to the area where we found the grave of Leonard Veater.

It was quite an emotional experience and I was surprised by the feelings that rose in me as Leonard died years before I was born. I had never met him.

"I thought of my mother as I placed a small cross with a poppy attached in the earth. I felt happy that I had been able to keep a promise I had made to Mother many years before.

"I have no information about his death - why or how it happened - but with the aid of a computer I believe I can find out. The grave is in a small cemetery and all the soldiers at rest there are Canadian.

 "What had the war done to the four boys that returned from the war?" Find out in next month's Flyer. (This never appears, cut short we presume by Ruth's unexpected and sudden death (see below))

The family house and shop (with three round top windows) where Leonard and his siblings lived, can be seen at the bottom of the street. The photograph is roughly contemporary to the events described.

Obituary - Ruth Flower RUTH FLOWER, Parish Councillor Public Speaker, Actress and 'DJ', died s~ddenly at her home on Monday May 26 aged 83. Ruth was born on March 29 1931 and was the third child of Charles and Amy Beish who lived in The Street, Farmborough. She was educated at Farmborough Church of England Primary and Timsbury Secondary Modern Schools and after completing her education found employment in the retail trade at Keynsham. Ruth's father, Charlie, was a local preacher at The Batch Methodist Church where she sang in the choir. She was very much involved in village life and in 1947 Ruth took the eye of the judges at a competition to find Farmborough's Carnival Queen and won! It was on a night out with other locals when attending a dance that Ruth met her husband to be, Ron Flower. They immediately fell for each other and so started a fantastic love affair that lasted throughout their lives and most likely beyond. Ron had recently been demobbed from the Royal Engineers and was the proud owner of a Vellocette motor cycle. Both Ron and Ruth would go off on trips to Weston-super-Mare and Cheddar. They were inseparable and after much courtship they married in 1952 and moved into a cottage at Hobbs Wall. Eventually they took over a shop at the bottom of The Batch, now Stream House, and it was there, in 1959, their son Simon was born. Ron landed a job with the MOD which meant that the family had to move to Bewdly in Worcestershire and following a few more moves they ended up in Winslow where Ruth opened a fabric shop, Ruth's Fabrics The 1980s saw another change when Simon embarked on a diving career in the USA and Ron and Ruth moved to Portugal. Sadly Ron died in 1998 and it was then Ruth decided to return to the UK With her talent for singing Ruth had been a member of a local amateur dramatic society where she was well suited and a regular choice for the role of principal boy in the "Stratton Players" pantomimes. On her return to England she soon became very involved with the entertainment side of life. Ruth had bit parts in "Casualty" and also had a role in the film "Stardust" with Robert De Niro. She took part in advertising campaigns for The Nationwide Building Society and Oakhouse Foods. Known as "Mamy Rock" Ruth was a DJ and travelled all over the world sharing her ideas of life and how to live it. She even performed at the Glastonbury Festival and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest working DJ. Despite all of this Ruth managed to fit in the work of a Parish Councillor. How did she do it? Ruth's death was a shock to us all. During her lifetime she touched the hearts and lives of many and we shall miss her. Ruth is survived by her son, Simon, daughter-in-law Tracey and grandson Franklyn Ruth Flower born March 29 1931, died May 26 2014.

"Nothing new under the sun."

From A. E. Houseman - A Shropshire Lad.

          "Farewell to barn and stack and tree,
           Farewell to Severn shore.
          Terence, look your last at me,
           For I come home no more.

          "The sun burns on the half-mown hill,
           By now the blood is dried;
          And Maurice amongst the hay lies still
           And my knife is in his side."

          "My mother thinks us long away;
           'Tis time the field were mown.
          She had two sons at rising day,
           To-night she'll be alone."

          "And here's a bloody hand to shake,
           And oh, man, here's good-bye;
          We'll sweat no more on scythe and rake,
           My bloody hands and I."

          "I wish you strength to bring you pride,
           And a love to keep you clean,
          And I wish you luck, come Lammastide,
           At racing on the green."

          "Long for me the rick will wait,
           And long will wait the fold,
          And long will stand the empty plate,
           And dinner will be cold."


          The winds out of the west land blow,
           My friends have breathed them there;
          Warm with the blood of lads I know
           Comes east the sighing air.

          It fanned their temples, filled their lungs,
           Scattered their forelocks free;
          My friends made words of it with tongues
           That talk no more to me.

          Their voices, dying as they fly,
           Thick on the wind are sown;
          The names of men blow soundless by,
           My fellows' and my own.

          Oh lads, at home I heard you plain,
           But here your speech is still,
          And down the sighing wind in vain
           You hollo from the hill.

          The wind and I, we both were there,
           But neither long abode;
          Now through the friendless world we fare
           And sigh upon the road.

Ataturk Explosion Reports: A Couple of Questions.
I always find the source video of these 'terrorist events' very interesting and often instructive as to whom (at least) was first on scene, for which prior knowledge was probably necessary. For just one recent similar example see: . Virtually never are the sources of these images pursued, or the question asked how they came to be taken.
Also when witness reports appear to conflict with others it raises questions that are seldom answered or brushed aside. The visual images that always appear to immediately find their way onto the internet (and equally those that don't!) can provide useful markers in the direction of who knew and who planned the attack.
In the case of the Ataturk Airport bombing the video of the reaction to the explosion shown by the BBC here (  appears to come from 'Haber Turk HD'. See: and from which I quote this extract:
"From the day that it starts to broadcast, maintaining the principle of honest, true, fast and objective newscasting Habertürk Television has taken place among the leader companies in media in a short time and in 2009, it became “The Most Watched News Channel in Turkey”.

Being the leader of internet news reporting in Turkey, has been selected as the most loved news internet site and proved once more that it is the “Biggest Online Newspaper in Turkey” by  Ipsos KMG Digital Lovemark survey. continues to draw attention by means of the innovations and developments in the media sector."

Haber Turk appears to be part of the Ciner Group, a large industrial conglomerate probably little known in the West, except in specialist circles . It dates from relatively small beginnings in the 1980's importing Mercedes spare parts, to its position today with multiple interests and companies, including comparatively recently in its Haber Turk newspapers and TV linked to the American media company Bloomberg. See: and and (Note the latter Bloomberg source for the latter)
Because Ciner is a 'Private Company', detailed information on the group and its composite companies is hard to come by, particularly who controls and funds it. The following description of its activities comes from the latter source.

Company Overview

Ciner Group, through its subsidiaries, operates in energy, mining, media, commerce, industry, and service businesses in Turkey. The company’s Ciner Energy and Mining group engages in the operation of thermal power plants; production of coal from the underground coalmine; production of soda ash and sodium bicarbonate; extraction of copper ore, and production and export of copper concentrate; production and marketing of electrical energy; and wholesale, import, export, and direct sale of electrical energy.

Its prime mover and principal controller appears to be one, Turgay Ve Madencilik Anonim Sirketi CINER who is Chairman of the Board and President who is claimed to have a personal wealth of more than a billion pounds. 
It would appear as of 2.11.2015, power of attorney was granted by him in the United States for a company called 'OCI Resources' LPSee:
In fact from it appears that the Atlanta contacts are far more extensive:

It is hard to determine the significance of the following (translated) abstract from: but what could the title, "Turgay Ciner under the control of parallel organizations" or "had become the center of the most disgusting guardianship of black propaganda" possibly mean?
"Rasim Ozan Kütahyalı

Turgay Ciner under the control of parallel organizations

12 Subat 2014

"Yesterday in writing by Turgay Ciner files and tapes from the judgment that I wrote caged by parallel organizations. Cinema was so scared of this structure, especially in the 2011-12 season, going constantly Pennsylvania " At your service" , he said. This parallel organization also bluntly telling the media actors. This was not a situation stored.Fethullah Gulen followers in the speech of the fact that the situation is obviously pickup.Ciner, censor the author of his own newspaper Smiling name. He says forbidden to write against Gülen. 
Disciple: We've been Mr. Turgay Ciner today. He had a corner writing negative state of the author. We learned it. We searched for him. Personally launched. "This newspaper, nothing will stand against you," he said. All these 'Service Organization, "he said. "Our elder (Gülen) against the I make something here." 
Fethullah Gulen: Very good. Thank God."

"Parallel organization Turgay Ciner next Fatih Altayli of the files in its possession and had cages with tape. After the Haberturk newspaper and TV February 7 had become the center of the most disgusting guardianship of black propaganda. Especially frightened file Altai in terrible shape in the hands of the organization. Our scamp Conqueror had become toys in the hands of the organization. Still in that case . On the other hand, in the 2011-12 season through the judicial files and blackmail tapes Ciner Media takeover parallel organization conducted the operation against the AKP was not idle. Move towards the end of 2012 passed and made ​​some moves. After February 7 beyond AKP that all elements of the state apparatus in a position against Cinerama Republic of Turkey conveyed to him. State Cinema who fear the enemy position felt a need to balance the situation. Fatih Saraç'ao so he gave that task."

"Ciner eyyamc broadcast in 2013 and hypocritical policy of the ruling. But the group did not change the actual weight in practice. Currently, parallel power was dominated by the Cinerama. Saddler was standing right there as Yalova Governor. Much more organized parallel organization, the AKP, a power also was ambushed and successful. The trap they Here currency infamous scandalous results of the last few days wandering in the media.Since the AKP's early strategy for Cinerama was wrong and now It exploded in their hands. Sabah as at that time we also far from the Ciner group, we continued to stop construction because this group was an extension of the old Turkey as guardianship mentality. One group was given the SHOW TV. Complete this was ignominy. As I said at that time the AKP's senior to those who always wanted me to do this criticism continued to criticism hard to write it, and I told him what I knew. Now he is hitting the stone heads names. Ciner Group has created a perception as well as the control of both the parallel organization if AKP held in your hand. AKP because they gave ground."

"Currently the Ciner Media is establishing parallel organizations through a nasty trap of civil politics. Parallel organization continues to shoot birds with one stone. Fatih Altayli and parallel organization publishes many people's voice recordings by assembling itself .So now both Cinerama parallel organization of an illegal operation is in tatters with all men. But nobody criticize the Cinerama out parallel organization of a single word.Because they are afraid they will remove the tape from the other. The parallel organizations for fear that they are attacking the Prime Minister Erdogan wants. As Altay is infamous enough that only by adopting a style of parallel structures now come loaded to the AKP. Installed as the biggest mistakes that I have no objection expressed AKP. But y ayınlan be contrary to the law of the tape could not escape the attention of Altai one word spread parallel police and prosecutors on the internet. He entered the order of the rape cases currently Altay. Everyone makes a note of it. Pathetic. 
We opened new Turgay Ciner file. We will continue tomorrow."

From "Muhammed Fethullah Gülen (born 27 April 1941) is a Turkish preacher,[5]former imam,[5][6] writer,[7] and political figure.[8] He is the founder of the Gülen movement (known as Hizmet meaning service in Turkish). He currently lives in self-imposed exile in the United States, residing in Saylorsburg,Pennsylvania.[9][10][11] Gülen was an ally of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan before 2013. The alliance was destroyed after alleged 2013 corruption investigations in Turkey.[16][17][18][19][20] Erdogan accused Gülen for being behind the corruption investigations.[21] He is currently on Turkey's most-wanted terrorist list and is accused of leading what the current Turkish officials call the Gulenist Terror Organisation (FETO).[22][23] A Turkish criminal court issued an arrest warrant for Gülen.[24][25] Turkey is demanding the extradition of Gülen from the United States.[17][26][27]However, so far there is no Turkish court decision that charges Gulen or his followers with any terrorist activity.[28][29][30]"

Some obviously believe this gentleman, though very dangerous, has the active support of 
US Secret Services. From 
we have this:

"Exclusive: World’s ‘Most Dangerous Islamist’ Alive, Well, and Living in Pennsylvania
Paul Williams, PhD
April 7, 2010

An Islamic Armed Fortress Emerges in the Pocono Mountains

The most dangerous Islamist in the world is neither Afghani nor Arab.
He comes from neither Sudan nor Somalia.

And he resides in neither the mountains of Pakistan nor the deserts of the Palestinian territories.

This individual has toppled the secular government of Turkey and established madrassahs throughout the world.

His schools indoctrinate children in the tenets of radical Islam and prepare adolescents for the Islamization of the world.

More than 90 of these madrassahs have been established as charter schools throughout the United States. They are funded by American taxpayers.

One of these charter schools – Tarek ibn Zayed Academy (TiZA) in Minnesota – is so radically Islamic and subversive in nature that the Minnesota Department of Education issued two citations against it and the American Civil Liberties Union is suing it.

Dozens of his universities, including the Faith University in Istabul, train young men to become lawyers, accountants, and political leaders so that they can take an active part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the Islamization of the Western World.

He also allegedly operates compounds to train jihadis in the tactics of guerilla warfare.
This individual has amasssed a fortune – over $30 billion – for the creation of a universal caliphate.

His name is Fethullah Gulen and he resides not in the wilds of southern Turkey – but the mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

From his fortess headquarters, located on 28 acres at 1857 Mt. Eaton Road in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, Gulen plots the overthrow of secular governments and oversees the spread of education jihad throughout Asia, Europe, and the United States."

Is it worth noting that the US security services have a strong presence in Atlanta. From ... comes the following: 

"The United States Secret Service, which upholds a mission of being both an investigative and protective federal law enforcement agency, has a strong presence in Georgia, thanks to the three field offices located here:
  • Albany 229-430-8442
  • Atlanta 404-331-6111
  • Savannah 912-652-4401
The Secret Service also has two task forces in place in Georgia, both of which operate out of the Atlanta field office:
  • Electronic Crimes Task Force: Designed to investigate any number of electronic crimes that could result in terrorist attacks against infrastructure and financial payment systems
  • Financial Crimes Task Force: Designed to investigate financial crimes that threaten the nation’s financial payment systems and critical infrastructure
Training – All candidates for Secret Service agent jobs should also be prepared to undergo an extensive course of training following their hire. The first training period takes place at the Federal Law Enforcement Agency Training Center (FLETC) in Georgia for a period of 11 weeks, while the second training period takes place at the James J.
