stint working

National Service, Cook attained the rank of corporal (latrines). After a brief stint working for the family business, selling lingerie in a department store in Neath, Wales, he spent most of the Fifties abroad. He lived in the Beat Hotel in Paris, rubbing shoulders with his neighbours William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, and danced at fashionable left bank (Rive Gauche) ''boîtes (nightclub)'' with the likes of Juliette Greco. In New York he resided on the Lower East Side and was married to an heiress (Beneficiary) from New England for all of sixty-five days. He claimed that he was sick of the dead-on-its-feet upper crust he was born into, that he didn’t believe in and didn’t want, whose values were meaningless. He was seeking to carve his way out — “Crime was the only chisel I could find.” Cook smuggled oil paintings to Amsterdam, drove fast cars into Spain from Gibraltar, and consummated his downward mobility (Social mobility) by spending time in a Spanish jail for sounding off about Francisco Franco in his local bar. After serving as part of the Garrison of Gibraltar from 24 April 1941 to 1 December 1943, it was redesignated as the 28th Infantry Brigade (28th Infantry Brigade (United Kingdom)) and as such saw action in Sicily (Battle of Sicily) and Italy (Italian Campaign (World War II)) as part of the 4th Infantry Division (British 4th Infantry Division). From December 1944 through to August 1945 the Brigade served in Greece with General Ronald Scobie's III Corps (III Corps (United Kingdom)). *Even though this was written before the 1999 massacre (Columbine High School massacre), it is one of the massacres foreshadowed in this play. *It has been performed widely in the United States, as well as in other countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Uruguay, Gibraltar, Sweden, Romania, Venezuela, India, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Bulgaria, and in Portugal by InActu Theatre Group, a group of students from Madeira Island, who have been working on the play since 2007. As the playwright intends ''Bang Bang You're Dead'' to raise awareness of school violence, it may be performed without payment of royalties, as long as the performance is not for profit, and subject to certain other conditions. *The 2002 Showtime (Showtime (TV network)) telemovie ''Bang Bang You're Dead (Bang Bang You're Dead (film))'' features students rehearsing and performing the play. Territorial application Part I of the Act (copyright provisions) extends to the whole of the United Kingdom (s. 157). It has also been extended, with consequential amendments, by Order in Council to Bermuda


power modern

uk 6203673.stm accessdate 2008-05-18 date 2006-12-23 Sea power Modern views of the rise of Rome have tended to be economic, often focused on Roman control of the sea lanes, which was achieved at great cost after many sea-borne encounters with Carthage, the pirates of Macedon, and so on, all of which led ultimately to control of the Mediterranean and its important ports and bottlenecks (such as Gibraltar, later to be critical also to the British Empire). In this view, it was the capacity to land troops in large numbers more or less anywhere there was a sea coast, and to keep them in supply from areas enemy actions could not touch, that defined Roman military and economic advantage. According to Barbara Tuchman in ''The Proud Tower: Europe 1880-1914'', this view was so influential on the British empire and American naval strategists of the turn of the 19th to 20th century, that it effectively motivated the rise of the United States Navy and Germany's and Russia's and Japan's attempts to become main naval powers. And, also, Italy's attempts to renew traditional Roman control of Mediterranean and North Africa. OriginalAirDate


vast part

was to develop a powerful navy and trade relationships that would come to constitute a vast part of the world including India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and many key naval strategic points like Bermuda, Suez, Hong Kong and especially Gibraltar. These strategic advantages grew and were to prove decisive until after the Second World War (World War II).

Spain entered the war as a French ally with the goal of recapturing Gibraltar and Minorca, which it had lost to the British in 1704. Gibraltar was besieged (Great Siege of Gibraltar) for more than three years, but the British garrison stubbornly resisted and was resupplied twice: once after Admiral Rodney (George Rodney)'s victory over Juan de Lángara in the 1780 "Moonlight Battle" (Battle of Cape St. Vincent (1780)), and again after Admiral Richard Howe (Richard Howe, 1st Earl Howe) fought Luis de Córdova y Córdova to a draw in the Battle of Cape Spartel. Further Franco-Spanish efforts to capture Gibraltar were unsuccessful. One notable success took place on February 5, 1782, when Spanish and French forces captured Minorca (Invasion of Minorca, 1781), which Spain retained after the war. Ambitious plans for an invasion of Great Britain in 1779 had to be abandoned (Armada of 1779).
