Finished "The Waterloo Archive: Volume III: British Sources", edited by Gareth Glover.

More letters from participants.  In some cases different information is presented that is different than the written historical record.  Some are hearsay, but others were participants so seem correct.

Particularly if written or recounted some time after the events described.

Don't buy your daughters a pony, buy them heroin instead, its cheaper and ultimately less addictive.

Just finished watching Harlock: Space Pirate on Amazon Prime, a glorious, ludicrous, space opera romp, somewhere between Battle Beyond the Stars and Dread Pirate Roberts in theme and tone.

The Battle Cry of Freedom by McPherson on the ACW. Just started but very readable and full of interesting info, setting the scene for the conflict.

Years a go I did some tutoring at a young offenders institute and the daft charity I worked for had bought a load of H .R. Rider-Haggard books for the inmates.

Finished "Send For Freddie: The Story of Montgomery's Chief of Staff Major-General Sir Francis de Guingand, KBE, CB, DSO" by General Sir Charles Richardson.

Interesting person and well written.  Montgomery comes in for his share of being a difficult person, but he did really like Freddie.

Enjoyed it.

Did anyone else watch the Channel 5 three part series about the 1665 plague ?

Thought that was really interesting.....Especially the bit about Eyam....A village in the Peak district. They basically locked themselves off from the outside world, once the plague reached them.....So they wouldn't spread the contagion any further.....Particularly selfless action.

Cheers - Phil

I've been to the Peak District. Do you think it's about time we told Eyam it's all clear?

Oh ... hang on ...

Let's leave it a while.
